RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The Virginia-American Water Company is asking the State Corporation Commission to increase rates for water service to produce $8.69 million in water revenues.

SCC said in a news release Monday that it has scheduled a June 2016 hearing in downtown Richmond on the request to increase rates.

Virginia-American Water states the increase in water revenues will be divided between its various operating districts including Alexandria, Hopewell and Prince William County. The company is also proposing the approval and implementation of an annual Infrastructure Charge rider to be added to customer bills to recover costs of investments in its water and wastewater systems.

SCC says the requested increase may take effect April 1, 2016 on an interim basis, subject to refund, following a final determination by the commission.
