Unsubmitted Water Loss Audits
Roughly 30% of Indiana’s water utilities did not submit their required 2019 Water Loss Audit and Validation report by the January 1, 2021 deadline, as required in Senate Enrolled Act 4 (“SEA 4”). Without a submitted Water Loss Audit, your utility may be at risk of losing utility improvement financing capabilities through the Indiana Finance Authority State Revolving Loan Fund. Fortunately, it appears you may be able to solicit an extension to this deadline. If your utility needs to request an extension, you can do so until February 15, 2021. For more information on the Water Loss Audits, you can visit IFA’s website at https://www.in.gov/ifa/water-loss-audits/.
