Salina Water Utility Ordered To Improve

KSAL StaffJuly 19, 2013

A state regulatory agency is requiring a Salina water utility to make some improvements.

The Kansas Corporation Commission voted Thursday to require Howison Heights to buy a new computer to monitor water pressure in its lines and to install new equipment to keep chlorination at the right level. The improvements are required in the next 60 days.

Howison Heights serves about 60 customers in suburban Salina. More than a third of its customers submitted comments opposing a more than 100 percent rate hike the utility requested in April. Some of those customers complained about insufficient water pressure, water discoloration and a strong chlorine smell in the water.

The rate increase was approved, but later was suspended and isn’t currently in force.
