Keep an eye on your water bill: Veolia moves to increase rates by 24%


The company that supplies drinking water to most of the Treasure Valley wants to raise its rates by 24%.

Veolia is asking the Idaho Public Utilities Commission for the rate hike, saying it has spent $70 million to improve water quality and safety. Angela Palermo reports on business and public health for the Idaho Statesman and joins Idaho Matters to help break this down.

As Senior Producer of our live daily talk show Idaho Matters, I’m able to indulge my love of storytelling and share all kinds of information (I was probably a Town Crier in a past life!). My career has allowed me to learn something new everyday and to share that knowledge with all my friends on the radio.
