Peoria and Pekin residents will see higher water rates next year, though not nearly as high as Illinois American Water originally requested.

    

The Illinois Commerce Commission approved a statewide hike of over $35 million.

    

Illinois American was asking for $49.5.

    

The Journal-Star reports the money is going to be used for infrastructure expenses.

    

The new rates will go into effect early next year.

    

As far as how much your bill will go up, Illinois American will release that information soon.
