The refund will be appear on water bills no later than Oct. 1, the release reads.

The PRC ordered New Mexico American Water to refund a total of $241,316.

“After we allowed the water company to recover all of its cost of service under its Southwest Cheese Company contract, I thought it was important that all the remaining excess revenue be refunded to customers,” PRC Commissioner Jason Marks said.

The PRC approved a rate hike of up to 13 percent for Clovis customers in June depending on water usage.
