One Louisiana water company has plans to expand, and it could cost customers.

Ward 2 Water drew up plans to offer service to residents in Walker who still use well water. Residents could see a $1.13 increase in their bill, but it wouldn't take effect for two years.

The new project could cost around $12 million and the funds will be used for water towers and newer pipelines.
