Mar. 8, 2016 – A majority of consumers' water usage occurs indoors. Check faucets for leaks. Leaking faucets are a major source for wasting water. A small leak may not look like a problem, but you could be paying unnecessarily for many gallons of wasted water each month.
Marion, Ohio (July 2, 2014) – The city of Marion has requested and obtained a local public hearing from the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio on Aqua Ohio Water Co.’s proposal to increase water service rates. Customers can provide comment at 6 p.m., July 9, at The Ohio State University Marion Campus, Guthery Community Room, 220 Maynard Hall.
Water bills could be going up for as many as 86,000 Aqua Ohio customers if the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) grants Aqua's request for a rate increase. In December 2013, Aqua Ohio asked for a rate increase of approximately 11.75 percent, or around $6.65 million. Of that increase, residential customers would have to pay $4.34 million for water service if Aqua's request is approved.
