Terry Rakocy, the company's chief operating officer, said Friday that the unfavorable service rating the Florida Public Service Commission gave Aqua had no legal basis.
"For the PSC to make such an unfavorable determination, they have to cite a specific violation of either a PSC statute or Department of Environmental Protection regulation that we failed to meet.
The commission failed to list any such citation," Rakocy
The PSC did not accept the studies the company provided, Rakocy

said buying city water would be one-and-a-half to two times more expensive, and says he
can't speak to why the city claims such a partnership would save money.
also said that buying water from the city would appear to break the law by violating the Great Lakes Basin Compact, which doesn't allow water to be taken from the Great Lakes and never returned.
said the city appears to be violating that compact now with the drinking water service it provides to about 200 Aqua Indiana sanitary sewer customers.
