The water company, which supplies about 20 mgd, was added to the Nasdaq after releasing a third quarter report pointing to record operating revenues and net income for the first three quarters of the year 2000.

During the first nine months of the year, the company spent over $4.4 million on construction projects, primarily on its water distribution system to expand its service territory.

Operating revenues for the third quarter increased $127,589 or 2.8% over the third quarter 1999. Net income for the third quarter increased $228,730 or 25.1% compared to the third quarter 1999 primarily due to a decrease in general and administrative expenses.
