Welcome to the Information Website for the City of Shreveport’s Department of Water and Sewerage (DOWAS) Partial Rounding Settlement.
If you were a residential customer (both Inside City and Outside City) who received and paid a bill(s) from the City of Shreveport’s Department of Water and Sewerage (DOWAS) from October 1, 2011 through December 31, 2019 and were charged for the “Sewer Quantity Charge” on any such bill(s) when the Average Winter Consumption (“AWC”) was applied to residential customer’s “Sewer Quantity Charge, was “rounded up” to the nearest “whole thousand gallon”, you may be entitled to a payment from a class action settlement.
A $5.9 million Partial Settlement has been reached in a class action about the way in which the City of Shreveport calculated residential water and sewer customers’ Average Winter Consumption (“AWC”) and, using same, billed the customer’s “Sewer Quantity Charge” on their water and sewer bills. This Partial Settlement was reached with Defendant, the City of Shreveport. The Partial Settlement offers payments to Settlement Class Members who file valid Claims.
