NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

APPLICATION OF KAUPULEHU WATER COMPANY
FOR A CHANGE IN RATES AND OTHER APPROVALS

Docket No. 2016-0363

The STATE OF HAWAII PUBLIC UTILITIES COMMISSION ("Commission"), pursuant to Hawaii Revised Statutes §§ 269-12 and 269-16, HEREBY GIVES NOTICE that it will hold a public hearing relating to the Amended Application of KAUPULEHU WATER COMPANY ("KWC"), filed on April 28, 2017, as supplemented on May 31, 2017 ("Application"), for Commission approval of a change in rates and other approvals.  The public hearing will be held as follows:

Thursday, August 17, 2017, at 6:00 p.m.

West Hawaii Civic Center
Council Chambers
74-5044 Ane Keohokalole Highway
Kailua-Kona, Hawaii   96740

KWC is a public utility that provides water service in its service area of Kaupulehu, on the island of Hawaii.
KWC seeks Commission approval for a January 1, 2017 through December 31, 2017 test year net revenue increase of $273,571.99 for its operations, which amounts to an approximate increase of 6.15% over the pro forma revenue amount of $4,446,623 at present rates for the 2017 test year.  KWC represents that the proposed  revenue increase would provide KWC with an opportunity to earn a 5.0924% rate of return.
As part of its Application, KWC requests that the Commission approve the following:  (1) the transfer of certain facilities from Hualalai Investors LLC, to KWC; (2) an increase in KWC’s monthly water consumption charge for potable water from $6.65 per thousand gallons ("TG") to $7.63 per TG; (3) the establishment of an initial monthly water consumption charge for untreated well water of $6.31 per TG; (4) an increase in the electricity cost used for computing the automatic power cost adjustment charge from $2.01325 to $3.10233 per TG for both potable water and untreated water, or such other cost factor for electricity determined by the Commission to be KWC’s actual cost for such electricity; (5) certain additional changes to KWC’s Rules and Regulations; and (6) such other and further relief as may be just and equitable in the premises.
KWC additionally requests that the Commission approve: (1) increases to monthly meter charges for 5/8", 1", 1-1/2", 3", 6", and 8" meter sizes; and     (2) the establishment of new monthly meter charges for 2", 4", 10", and 12" meter sizes.  Although KWC currently charges customers monthly meter charges for the 2", 4", and 12" meter sizes, these monthly meter charges have not been approved by the Commission.

REQUESTED INCREASES TO MONTHLY METER CHARGES

Meter Size        Current Charges Requested New Monthly Charges

5/8" $4.00 $13.75
1" $11.50 $34.40
1-1/2" $22.50 $68.75
3" $60.00 $206.25
6" $195.00 $687.50
8" $350.00 $1,100.00

REQUESTED NEW MONTHLY METER CHARGES

Meter Size  Unapproved Charges  Requested New Monthly Charges

2" $22.50 $110.00
4" $60.00 $343.75
10" n/a $1,581.25
12" $350.00 $2,320.30

The Commission will investigate whether the proposals in the Application, including revisions to KWC’s rate schedules, are just and reasonable.  The total revenue requirement for the 2017 calendar test year will not exceed the $273,571.99 amount over revenues at present rates that KWC requests.  However, changes to rates and charges that are finally approved by the Commission, if any, may be higher or lower than KWC’s proposed rates and charges herein.  Changes to rates and charges, if any, would go in to effect upon the date of authorization by the Commission.
The foregoing is a brief summary of the requests included in KWC’s Application.  Copies of KWC’s Application are available for public review through the Commission’s    electronic Document Management System, accessible at http://dms.puc.hawaii.gov/dms/, Docket Quick Link 2016-0363.  In addition, copies of KWC’s Application are also available for review by contacting         KWC [(808) 325-8413], the Commission’s Hawaii Island Office [(808) 974-4533] or Honolulu Office [(808) 586-2020], or the Division of Consumer Advocacy [(808) 586-2800]. 
All interested persons are invited to attend the public hearing to state their views on KWC’s Application.  Statements may also be mailed to the Public Utilities Commission, 465 South King Street, Room No. 103, Honolulu, Hawaii 96813, or   e-mailed to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). All written statements should reference Docket No. 2016-0363.  Special accommodations for persons with disabilities can be made if requested reasonably in advance by contacting the Commission’s Honolulu Office.
Motions to Intervene or Participate in this proceeding shall comply with Subchapter 4, Rules of Practice and Procedure Before the Public Utilities Commission, Hawaii Administrative Rules, Title 6, Chapter 61.  A motion to intervene or participate in this proceeding shall be filed with the Commission’s Honolulu Office by August 28, 2017.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
COUNTY OF KAUA’I
The Board of Water Supply of the County of Kaua’i ("Board") will hold
a public hearing and receive public testimony and comments from all
interested persons regarding the following item:
PROPOSED AMENDMENTS TO THE RULES AND REGULATIONS OF
THE BOARD OF WATER SUPPLY, COUNTY OF KAUA’I, STATE OF HAWAI’I
Administrative rule material to be repealed is bracketed. New material is underscored.
Deleted material is stricken.
The Department of water is recommending the following rule changes:
PART 2 – WATER SERVICE CONNECTIONS
SECTION II - GENERAL CONDITIONS
1. Any prospective consumer may obtain water service provided all of the following
conditions are met:
a. In the event that Water Sservice limits Areas are established by the Depart
ment, that the premises are within these limits a Water Service Area.
A "Water Service Area" is defined as an area that is serviced by existing water
system facilities. A Water Service Area is generally limited to areas that have appropriate
planning and zoning approvals in place. Water service is generally available within a
Water Service Area unless system infrastructure improvements are needed to provide
adequate water supply without detrimentally affecting existing consumers. As identified
in Water Plan 2020, water systems and the Water Service Area can be used for purposes
of planning and can be applied to guide service and development of future water service.
Consistent with the Kaua’i General Plan and for the purposes of Water Plan
2020, the Department takes a conservative approach in defining service areas of the
existing water systems, in effect, limiting them to areas that have appropriate planning
and zoning approvals in place. Land use policies area established and governed by the
County. The Department seeks to coordinate development effort with the County and
private developers seeking to connect to Department-operated water systems.
If the premises are not located within a Water Service Area, then the
Department may grant an exemption to this section pursuant to procedures adopted
by the Department. and as long as the prospective consumer provides the necessary
source, storage and transmission facilities required for the prospective consumer’s
anticipated use.
b. The Department has a sufficient water system developed for domestic use
and, if required by the Department, a sufficient water system for fire
protection. In order to determine the sufficiency of the water system, the
Department may require the prospective consumer to estimate the amount of
water to be used.
c. The consumer agrees to design, construct, and install any component of the
water system required by the Department in compliance with (1) all
applicable statutes, ordinances, rules, and regulations of the State of Hawai’i
and the County of Kaua’i, and (2) the 2002 Water System Standards
("Standards") developed by Hawai’i’s four county departments of water,
as amended by the Department’s 2005 Amendments ("2005 Amendments")
to the Standards as it may be subsequently amended. The Standards and
the 2005 Amendments (as amended) are hereby incorporated by reference
into the Department’s rules. The Manager and Chief Engineer may, for good
cause shown, permit departure from the Standards or 2005 Amendments, or
both (as amended).
d. The consumer agrees to abide by these rules and regulations.
e. All applicable charges have been paid.
The Department of Water is recommending the following rule changes:
PART 5 – FACILITY RESERVE CHARGE
SECTION III - APPLICABILITY
1. The Facilities Reserve Charge shall be assessed against all new
developments and subdivisions requiring supply of water from the County of
Kaua’i, Department of Water, and existing developments requiring new or
additional supply of water from the Department’s system. The Facilities

new or existing development.
2. The Facilities Reserve Charge shall be paid by all Applicants for new or
additional water service, including but not limited to the following:
a. All irrigation services and/or meters.
b. Additional buildings to be connected to existing services where additional
demands are indicated. The charges shall be based on the meter sizes

categories.
d. Changes in service that require an increase in meter size.
e. Where an FRC was paid but a water meter was never installed to serve the
subject property, the applicant shall pay the Facilities Reserve Charge in
accordance with Part 5, Section IV (4) of these Rules.
3. The Facilities Reserve Charge shall apply to all Applicants for water service as
follows:
a. For each parcel created by subdivision, including the first lot created; and
for every new single family residential dwelling unit not yet metered and
a Facilities Reserve Charge has not yet been paid, the applicable Facilities
Reserve Charge shall be $14,115.00.
b. The Facilities Reserve Charge for multi-family and/or resort development will
be the cost of the approved meter size or the cost of $9,880.00 per unit or

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

APPLICATION OF AQUA PUHI, LLC, dba PUHI SEWER & WATER COMPANY
FOR REVIEW AND APPROVAL OF RATE INCREASES; REVISED RATE SCHEDULES; AND CHANGES TO ITS TARIFF

Docket No. 2017-0118

The PUBLIC UTILITIES COMMISSION of the STATE OF HAWAII ("Commission"), pursuant to Hawaii Revised Statutes ("HRS") §§ 269-12 and 269-16, HEREBY GIVES NOTICE that it will hold a public hearing relating to the Application of AQUA PUHI, LLC, dba PUHI SEWER & WATER COMPANY ("PSW"), filed on May 15, 2017, for review and approval of rate increases, revisions of rate schedules, and changes to its tariff. 

The public hearing will be held as follows:

Thursday, August 3, 2017, at 6:00 p.m.

Lihue State Office Building
3060 Eiwa Street, Rooms 209A, B, & C
Lihue, Hawaii   96766

PSW is a public utility authorized by the Commission to provide wastewater collection and treatment services to the residential, commercial, and industrial customers within its authorized service territory on the island of Kauai.  In addition, PSW provides non-potable water services to certain commercial customers in its authorized non-potable water service territory.  PSW also provides R-1 quality effluent to the Puakea Golf Course and nonregulated septage dumping service to local septage haulers. 
In connection with its wastewater collection and treatment services, PSW’s existing rate design provides for three customer classes: (1) residential; (2) commercial; and (3) industrial.  PSW’s existing rate design consists of: (1) a fixed minimum monthly service charge for residential, commercial, and industrial customers; and (2) a monthly sewer treatment charge for commercial and industrial customers that is based on each thousand gallons of metered domestic water utilized by the customer.

PSW’s existing rate design is as follows:

MINIMUM MONTHLY SERVICE CHARGES


Customer Class  Present Rate
 
Residential   $49.00 per month
 
Commercial (all meter sizes)  $275.00 per month
 
Industrial (all meter sizes)  $286.00 per month

MONTHLY SEWER TREATMENT CHARGES


Customer Class  Present Rate
 
Commercial   $4.37 per 1,000 gallons
 
Industrial   $7.18 per 1,000 gallons
 

In connection with its non-potable water and R-1 quality effluent services, PSW’s approved tariff rates/charges also include: (1) a monthly non-potable consumption charge of $1.55 for each thousand gallons of nonpotable water utilized; and (2) a monthly effluent charge of $0.50 for each thousand gallons of effluent delivered to the Puakea Golf Course.  Based on the information set forth in PSW’s Application, PSW currently provides non-potable water to only three commercial customers.  Similarly, PSW only provides effluent to the Puakea Golf Course for irrigation purposes.  PSW is not seeking any changes to its non-potable water and effluent tariff rates/charges. 

PSW seeks the Commission’s approval of a net revenue increase of $332,320 for its combined wastewater and non-potable operations based on a 2018 calendar test year.  This proposal represents an increase of approximately 19.68% over the pro forma revenue amount of $1,688,296 at present rates.  PSW alleges that the proposed revenue increase would provide PSW with the opportunity to earn a 7.75% rate of return on its prudently incurred costs for utility assets and recovery of its prudently incurred expenses.
In addition to requesting a revenue increase, PSW seeks to modify its rate design by: (1) combining the commercial and industrial customer classes into a single customer class; and (2) replacing the fixed minimum monthly service charge with a minimum monthly service charge schedule that is based on the commercial/industrial customers’ applicable water meter size (5/8", 3/4", 1", 11/2", 2" and 3"). 
If approved, PSW proposes to phase in its recommended rates/charges in a three-step increase.  In its final phase, PSW’s proposed rates/charges for its wastewater collection and treatment services, incorporating its requested revenue increase, are as follows:

MINIMUM MONTHLY SERVICE CHARGES


Customer Class  Proposed Rate
Residential   $61.00 per month
 
Commercial/Industrial – 5/8" Meter $258.33 per month
 
Commercial/Industrial – 3/4" Meter $341.67 per month
 
Commercial/Industrial – 1" Meter $466.67 per month
 
Commercial/Industrial – 1.5" Meter $550.00 per month
 
Commercial - 2" Meter $675.00 per month
 
Commercial - 3" Meter $1,008.33 per month

MONTHLY SEWER TREATMENT CHARGES


Customer Class  Proposed Rate  
Commercial/Industrial $6.00 per 1,000 gallons of water     usage

As reflected above, PSW’s commercial and industrial customers would be combined into a single customer class, which would be subject to a progressive minimum monthly service charge schedule basedon water meter size (i.e., inches in diameter).  Additionally, as a combined customer class, existing commercial and industrial customers would be subject to the same monthly sewer treatment charge, based on volume (i.e., per thousand gallons of water utilized).
PSW additionally requests that the Commission approve proposed revisions to its wastewater tariff (PSWC Tariff No. 1) by, among other things: (1) changing the sewer rate schedules; (2) updating its Automatic Power Cost Adjustment Clause for wastewater services; (3) establishing a flat service connection fee (instead of deposit) of not less than $125; and (4) increasing the returned check charge from $20.00 to $25.00.  PSW is not proposing any changes to its non-potable tariff (PSWC Tariff No. 2) at this time.
The Commission will investigate whether the proposals in PSW’s Application, including revisions to its rates/charges and rate design, are just and reasonable.  The total revenue requirement for the 2018 calendar test year will not exceed the $332,320 amount over revenues at present rates that PSW requests.  However, the increase in rates and charges to be finally approved by the Commission, if any, may be higher or lower than PSW’s proposed rates and charges noted herein. 
At the public hearing, the Commission will receive in-person testimony from the  general public regarding PSW’s Application and proposed general rate increase and revised rate schedules and tariff changes, pursuant to HRS §§ 269-12(c) and 269-16(f).  All interested persons are invited to attend the public hearing to state their views on PSW’s Application verbally, in writing, or both.  So that all in attendance will have the opportunity to speak at the public hearing, the Commission may impose time limits for each person’s testimony.  Special accommodations for persons with disabilities can be made if requested reasonably in advance by contacting the Commission’s Honolulu Office.
In addition, written statements may be mailed to the Commission at 465 South King Street, Room 103, Honolulu, Hawaii, 96813, or sent by electronic mail to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).  Written statements should reference Docket No. 2017-0118 and include the author’s name and the entity or organization that the author represents, if any.
Copies of PSW’s Application are available for public review through the Commission’s electronic Document Management System, accessible at http://dms.puc.hawaii.gov/dms/, Docket Quick Link 2017-0118, or at Puhi Sewer & Water Company [3560 Koloa Road, Kalaheo, HI 96741, (808) 332-7381)].  In addition, copies of PSW’s Application are also available for review by contacting the Commission’s Kauai office [(808) 274-3232] or the Division of Consumer Advocacy [(808) 586-2800]. 
Any motions to intervene or participate in this proceeding must comply with the applicable provisions of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure Before the Public Utilities Commission, Hawaii Administrative Rules, Title 6, Chapter 61.  A motion to intervene or participate in this proceeding shall be filed with the Commission’s Honolulu Office by August 14, 2017.

COUNTY OF KAUA’I
The Board of Water Supply of the County of Kaua’i ("Board") will hold
a public hearing and receive public testimony and comments from all
interested persons regarding the following item:
PROPOSED AMENDMENTS TO THE RULES AND REGULATIONS OF
THE BOARD OF WATER SUPPLY, COUNTY OF KAUA’I, STATE OF HAWAI’I
Administrative rule material to be repealed is bracketed. New material is underscored.
Deleted material is stricken.
The Department of water is recommending the following rule changes:
PART 2 – WATER SERVICE CONNECTIONS
SECTION II - GENERAL CONDITIONS
1. Any prospective consumer may obtain water service provided all of the following
conditions are met:
a. In the event that Water Sservice limits Areas are established by the Depart
ment, that the premises are within these limits a Water Service Area.
A "Water Service Area" is defined as an area that is serviced by existing water
system facilities. A Water Service Area is generally limited to areas that have appropriate
planning and zoning approvals in place. Water service is generally available within a
Water Service Area unless system infrastructure improvements are needed to provide
adequate water supply without detrimentally affecting existing consumers. As identified
in Water Plan 2020, water systems and the Water Service Area can be used for purposes
of planning and can be applied to guide service and development of future water service.
Consistent with the Kaua’i General Plan and for the purposes of Water Plan
2020, the Department takes a conservative approach in defining service areas of the
existing water systems, in effect, limiting them to areas that have appropriate planning
and zoning approvals in place. Land use policies area established and governed by the
County. The Department seeks to coordinate development effort with the County and
private developers seeking to connect to Department-operated water systems.
If the premises are not located within a Water Service Area, then the
Department may grant an exemption to this section pursuant to procedures adopted
by the Department. and as long as the prospective consumer provides the necessary
source, storage and transmission facilities required for the prospective consumer’s
anticipated use.
b. The Department has a sufficient water system developed for domestic use
and, if required by the Department, a sufficient water system for fire
protection. In order to determine the sufficiency of the water system, the
Department may require the prospective consumer to estimate the amount of
water to be used.
c. The consumer agrees to design, construct, and install any component of the
water system required by the Department in compliance with (1) all
applicable statutes, ordinances, rules, and regulations of the State of Hawai’i
and the County of Kaua’i, and (2) the 2002 Water System Standards
("Standards") developed by Hawai’i’s four county departments of water,
as amended by the Department’s 2005 Amendments ("2005 Amendments")
to the Standards as it may be subsequently amended. The Standards and
the 2005 Amendments (as amended) are hereby incorporated by reference
into the Department’s rules. The Manager and Chief Engineer may, for good
cause shown, permit departure from the Standards or 2005 Amendments, or
both (as amended).
d. The consumer agrees to abide by these rules and regulations.
e. All applicable charges have been paid.
The Department of Water is recommending the following rule changes:
PART 5 – FACILITY RESERVE CHARGE
SECTION III - APPLICABILITY
1. The Facilities Reserve Charge shall be assessed against all new
developments and subdivisions requiring supply of water from the County of
Kaua’i, Department of Water, and existing developments requiring new or
additional supply of water from the Department’s system. The Facilities

new or existing development.
2. The Facilities Reserve Charge shall be paid by all Applicants for new or
additional water service, including but not limited to the following:
a. All irrigation services and/or meters.
b. Additional buildings to be connected to existing services where additional
demands are indicated. The charges shall be based on the meter sizes

subject property, the applicant shall pay the Facilities Reserve Charge in
accordance with Part 5, Section IV (4) of these Rules.

for every new single family residential dwelling unit not yet metered and
a Facilities Reserve Charge has not yet been paid, the applicable Facilities

c. The Facilities Reserve Charge for conversions of legally existing single-family
