• Park Water Company GRC

  • Background

    Every three years, Park Water Company may file an application with the CPUC requesting to increase customer rates for water service. On January 3, 2012, Park Water Company’s Central Basin Division submitted its proposal to the CPUC requesting authorization to increase rates charged for water service by:

    • $6,491,200 (26.16 %) in 2013 
    • $1,182,595 (3.77%) in 2014
    • $1,801,937 (5.53%) in 2015 
  • DRA's Policy Position

    On May 2, 2012, DRA issued its testimony report for Park Water Company’s general rate case.  DRA’s report recommends a smaller revenue increase of $4.53 million or 18.3%, comprised of the following key items:

    • Total Operating Revenues of $29.34 million vs. Park’s $31.3 million 
    • Operation and Maintenance expenses of $13.84 million vs. Park’s $14.24 million 
    • Administrative and General expenses of $7.89 million vs. Park’s $8.12 million 
    • Depreciation & Amortization expenses of $1.82 million vs. Park’s $2.24 million 
    • State and Federal Income Taxes of $2.42 million vs. Park’s $2.95 million  
    • Plant additions of $7.27 million vs. Park’s $10.3 million in 2013 
    • Plant additions of $5.22 million vs. Park’s $11.24 million in 2014 

     

    DRA negotiated a reduced revenue requirement of the requested increase from 26.16% to 21.01%, which it filed with the CPUC jointly with Park Water Company.
