    The San Jose Water Co. has filed a request with state regulators for yet another rate hike.

    In a petition filed last week with the California Public Utilities Commission, the company said it needs to cover $400 million in upgrades, including aging water mains, storage tanks and pump stations.

    If approved, the increase would add about $13 a month to customers' water bills over the next few years.

    The company’s request comes on the heels of a 4 percent bump that went into effect at the start of this year.
