CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - The company that provides water to nearly 600,000 West Virginians has notified regulators it intends to file a rate case for its water and wastewater operations.

The notice was given by West Virginia-American Water Company to the Public Service Commission of West Virginia. It says the company expects to file its case within 30 days.

The group Advocates for a Safe Water System says it will strongly oppose any attempt by the company to pass along to customers costs West Virginia-American Water incurred last year when chemicals from a leaking Freedom Industries storage tank along the Elk River contaminated drinking water supplies.

West Virginia-American Water’s plant was affected by the spill that left residents of nine counties without clean drinking water for more than a week in some cases.
