Water utilities. Allows a public water utility to apply to the Indiana utility regulatory commission (IURC) for an increase in its rates, in the form of a distribution system improvement charge (DSIC), to recover the costs of improvements to its distribution system under certain circumstances. Prohibits a public utility from filing a petition for a DSIC or a change in DSIC in the same calendar year in which the public utility has filed a request for a general increase in the basic rates and charges of the public utility. Provides that a public utility may file a petition for a change in its DSIC not more than one time every twelve months. Authorizes a health agency and the IURC to order a local water utility to extend service to an area that is located within a city or within a county containing a consolidated city and that is served by private wells if the health agency finds that: (1) the area suffers from a health hazard due to the presence of at least one contaminant; and (2) the area lies in at least one census track or block having a median household income of less than 200% of the most recently determined federal income poverty level.
