Illinois American Water Files for Another Rate Increase with the Illinois Commerce Commission.

On Janaury 25, 2024 IAW filed for another rate increase, it is being proposed and if approved by the ICC will take effect in 2025 with a 38.9% increase then again in 2026 for another 3.5% increase will be assessed to all customers of IAW. (FWD falls under "Central Water").

The process (rate case) will take 11 months before the ICC will give a "Final Order". At this time the ICC has not assigned an "e-docket number" in reference to the "rate Case". FWD will review what increase will be required once offical notice has been given with the actual increase being allowed by the ICC. You may lookup the actual case on the ICC website, the docket number is 24-0097. This number enter into ICC database will take you to the rate case with the ICC.







Fosterburg Water District (FWD) has been working in background since 2006 when intial discussions were held in securing an alternate water source. 

For more information about FWD required distribution modifications click here.

FWD has joined resources with 6 other communities to secure an alternate viable water source for their communities. The new water source will be ground water out of the Illinois Alluvial Aquifer.  This underground water source is located just South of the intersection of State route 16 and State Route 100 or North of Nutwood.   

The group came together to form a “Not-For-Profit” Corporation with an official business title known as Illinois Alluvial Regional Water Company. The communities working together are: Village of Fieldon, Jersey County Water Company, Village of Dorchester, City of Bunker Hill, City of Carlinville, Central Macoupin County Water District and Fosterburg Water District.
