In just three weeks South Carolina’s Public Service Commission will hold a public hearing on Carolina Water Service’s proposed 18.3% percent increase in water and sewer rates for residents in Tega Cay.

That hearing will take place Monday, December 3rd 6 p.m. in the Glennon Ballroom in Tega Cay.

State Rep. Ralph Norman of Rock Hill, whose district includes Tega Cay, says most residents there oppose any increase in water and sewer rates charged by Carolina Water Service.

Norman says the water provider is already in litigation with another York County municipality.

Norman says Tega Cay residents have a legitimate complaint about the proposed rate increase by Carolina Water Service.

Norman is urging as many Tega Cay residents as possible to turn out for next month’s public hearing.

The PSC will ultimately decide what rate increase if any is granted to Carolina Water Service.
