FORM 1
Instructions for Protesting a Sewer Company
Rate Increase
NMPRC Rule 17.13.970 NMAC
NMPRC Rule 17.13.970 NMAC implemented state law 62-9-2.1 that allows a sewer
company to propose rate increases of no more than 50% to its customers. For a utility
with one thousand five hundred (1,500) or fewer service connections in any operating
district or division, averaged over the previous three (3) consecutive years, a protest must
be signed by ten (10) percent, or more, of the utility’s ratepayers, or twenty-five (25)
ratepayers, whichever is more, receiving service from the utility at the time the change in
rate or rates is filed. For a utility with more than one thousand five hundred (1,500) but
less than five thousand (5,000) service connections in any operating district or division,
averaged over the previous three (3) consecutive years, a protest must be signed by ten
(10) percent or more of the ratepayers receiving service from the utility at the time the
change in rate or rates is filed. If sufficient protest(s) to the Commission are received, the
Commission will review the rate increase in a formal rate case. If less than the required
number of customers protest, the rate increase will go into effect without a formal rate
case.
To file a protest, the protest shall be signed by the person in whose name service is
carried. The protest must be received by the Commission within twenty (20) days from
the date the rates are filed with the Commission. The date the rates are filed will be
stated on the notice to customers that you have received from the utility or through a
special note.
To protest, fill out the enclosed protest form completely. You can leave the case number
blank and you do not need to fill out the attorney information if you do not have an
attorney. The protestor is not required to retain an attorney to file a protest.
You must deliver a copy of the protest to the sewer company either in person or by mail.
Then you should send the original rate protest form and certificates of service, plus ten
(10) copies to:
New Mexico Public Regulation Commission
Attn: Records Division
P.O. Box 1269
1120 Paseo de Peralta
Santa Fe, NM 87504-1269
For more information call the Commission at 505-827-4500 or toll free 1-888-427-5772,
or contact the sewer company.
