NWI is regulated by the Louisiana Public Service Commission. When a rate is requested, NWI must go before the LPSC for permission. The Commission staff is charged with the duty of investigating the request for rate change. During this time, NWI is required to justify all of its expenses for the operation of the company. After the complete investigation, a hearing is set. The commissioner’s decision will then determine the rates that the company will be permitted to collect.
NWI’s sewer rate is based on a monthly flat rate. The residential rate is $49.10 per month. There is also a .80cent DEQ Fee (Department of Environmental Quality) included with each monthly charge. There is also a New Service Fee of $50.00 that is charged on all new accounts when the account is established. This fee is included on all new accounts.
