An American Water subsidiary, Illinois American Water has reportedly signed an agreement with Granite City to acquire its wastewater collection system. Illinois American Water will seek permission for the acquisition from the Illinois Commerce Commission. The firm aims at closing the transaction by the end of 2020.

The contract of sale of the wastewater collection assets, that cater to over 12,500 customers, is valued at USD 18 million.

Before the Systems Viability Act, the valuation procedure was based on determining the original cost at the time of construction- that could be 50 years old or more – less cost of depreciation and contributed property.

Additionally, Illinois American Water has also inked a purchase agreement with Leonore, Andalusia, Sydney and Shiloh villages, along with and cities of Jerseyville and Rosiclare.
