Water Utilities in the State of Wisconsin are highly regulated by the Wisconsin Public Service Commission (PSC). The PSC sets water rates for utilities based upon complicated Cost of Service Studies analyzing current and future cash flows, debt, asset values and depreciation. The PSC also establishes policies and procedures that water utilities must abide by. These procedures can be found in the Wisconsin administrative code.
