A public utility, Durbin, Pocahontas County.
Application for a Certificate of Convenience and Necessity for the construction,
operation and maintenance of sewer system improvements and for approval of
financing related thereto, Pocahontas County.

FURTHER AMENDED NOTICE OF FILING

On February 25, 2021, the Pocahontas County Public Service District, filed an amended application to obtain a Certificate of Convenience and Necessity to construct a sewer extension totaling approximately 58,000 feet of 8-inch and smaller diameter main, pump stations, manholes and other related appurtenances to serve the Frank and Bartow areas of Pocahontas County. The project is to serve 106 new customers. The amended application will (1) implement a new rate structure for those new 106 customers in the Frank and Bartow areas and (2) provide for increased rates and charges for current customers of the District. The total project is to serve 106 new customers. The amended application is on file with and available for public inspection at the Public Service Commission, 201 Brooks Street in Charleston, West Virginia.

The total project cost is estimated to be $3,640,000 and is to be funded by a United States Economic Development Administration (USEDA) Grant (committed) for $1,500,000, a Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) Loan of $740,000 (2% for 30 years), an Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) Grant (committed) of $600,000, an Infrastructure & Jobs Development (IJDC) Grant of $500,000 (partially committed; remainder commitment in January, 2021) and a local Pocahontas County Public Service District funding contribution of $300,000.

Although the District has previously published notice of its amended proposed rates, Commission Staff filed recommended rates which are lesser than the proposed rates with the exception of the Minimum Charge for the Frank and Bartow customers. The District proposed $43.69 per month and Staff proposed $59.94 per month as the Minimum Charge.

The amended requested rates and charges among the various classes of customers are only a proposal and are subject to change (increases or decreases) by the Public Service Commission in its review of this filing.

Anyone desiring to protest or intervene should file a written protest or request to intervene within thirty (30) days following the date of this publication unless otherwise modified by Commission order. Failure to timely protest or request to intervene can affect your right to protest aspects of this certificate case, including any associated rate increases, or to participate in future proceedings.

All protests or requests to intervene should briefly state the reason for the protest or request to intervene. Requests to intervene must comply with the rules on intervention set forth in the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure. All protests and requests to intervene should be addressed to:

Connie Graley, Executive Secretary

Charleston, West Virginia 25323
In the absence of substantial protest received within thirty (30) days of this publication, the Commission may waive formal hearing and grant the application based on the Commission’s review of the evidence submitted with the application.
