Order Entered: The retail and wholesale water service rates proposed in Black Mountain's Application are denied. 2. The retail and wholesale water service rates and debt service surcharge shown in Appendix A are approved for services rendered on and after the date of this Order. 3. The proceeds from the debt service surcharge shall be used for no purpose other than the repayment of the RD bonds and KIA loans that were outstanding at the time Black Mountain merged with Green Hills. To ensure compliance with KRS 74.363(4), Black Mountain shall establish an escrow account with a financial institution into which it shall deposit the surcharge collections and out of which it shall separately account for repayment of these long-term debts. The amount of the surcharge may be reduced from time to time, with the Commission's approval, as each of the nine debt obligations is fully retired. The surcharge shall remain in effect until all debts are fully repaid. 4. If at any time the cash balance of the surcharge account is not sufficient to pay a principal or interest payment, the additional cash deposit that is necessary into the surcharge account to make payment shall come from the revenues received through the assessment of the Water Division 1 volumetric water service rates.
