Financial report summary

  • Fluctuations in customer demand for water due to seasonality, restrictions of use, weather, and lifestyle can adversely affect operating results.
  • Our business, financial condition, and results of operations have been and will continue to be negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Our business and financial performance may be adversely affected by the rising inflation.
Management Discussion
  • The revenue increase consists of $9,313 from Water Utility Services offset by a $153 decrease from Real Estate Services.
  • The revenue increase for Water Utility Services is primarily due to an increase in authorized rates which resulted in $25,179 of additional revenue, a net increase in revenue recognized from certain balancing and memorandum accounts of $3,941, an increase due to new customers of $2,896, and an increase in other regulatory mechanisms of $2,491, partially offset by a decrease in revenue of $24,702 due to lower usage and a decrease of $839 from the winter storm credits in Texas.
