Prohibits the State Corporation Commission from authorizing a water public utility, including a small water utility, from increasing its approved rates, fees, or charges through the use of a surcharge for non-revenue-generating infrastructure replacement or a similar surcharge pursuant to which the utility utilizes an automatic rate adjustment feature to increase its rates, fees, or charges. The measure further provides that the rates, fees, and charges that the Commission has approved for a utility to charge its customers shall not be authorized to increase above the amounts specified in an order of the Commission unless the Commission specifically increases such amounts in an order entered by the Commission.
