Residential customers of the Maryland American Water Co., which serves the greater Bel Air area, could see their monthly water bills increase by $2.33 if the Maryland Public Service Commission approves the utility's request for a two-step rate increase.
Donald Whitten, manager of Maryland American, said the company asked for the two-step increase Dec. 7. It is the third time in two years Maryland American has sought an increase.
Whitten said that if approved, the first rate increase, of $1.25 a month for the average residential customer, would take effect beginning in the summer of 1991. Later in 1991, the rate would increase by another $1.08 per month.
