Of the 25 Hardy County Public Service District sewer customers, nine are commercial and 16 are residential. But those nine contribute 90 percent of the sewage treated at the Baker plant.
That’s why the PSD balked when the West Virginia Public Service Commission recommended the utility raise rates across the board.
“We requested a split rate for commercial and residential customers,” said PSD Executive Director Logan Moyers. “The PSC didn’t agree.”
Moyers presented the information to the PSD Board of Directors at their meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 7.
