Current Bill Summary

SB 541 - Currently, water corporations in St. Louis County may petition the Public Service Commission to establish or change an infrastructure system replacement surcharge (ISRS) in order to perform water utility plant projects. This act modifies the definition of "water utility plant projects" to include replacement of lead pipes, including pipes that contain lead solder, and prohibits the Missouri Public Service Commission from approving an ISRS unless at least 30% of total ISRS costs are derived from the replacement of such lead pipes. This requirement shall no longer apply when a petitioning water corporation no longer owns infrastructure consisting of lead pipes.
