United Water Idaho wants more money, and company officials say a big reason they need it is because customers are using less water. This week, the company filed for a rate increase from the Idaho Public Utilities Commission. They want nearly a 20% increase for residential and commercial customers.
United Water officials say they need the money to help pay for $20 million in improvements they already made in Boise. Those include a new water treatment facility on the bench and a new water main on Hill Road.

The company says a big reason it doesn't have enough money is because people are using less water, consumption is down.
