The York Water Company Reports Three Months Earnings

The York Water Company

YORK, Pa., May 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The York Water Company's (NASDAQ:YORW) President, JT Hand, announced the Company's financial results for the first quarter of 2022.

President Hand reported that first quarter operating revenues of $14,240,000 increased $1,159,000 and net income of $3,859,000 increased $154,000 compared to the first quarter of 2021. Basic and Diluted Earnings per share of $0.29 for the three-month period increased $0.01 compared to the same period last year. Increased revenues were primarily due to growth in the customer base from the West Manheim Township wastewater acquisition and the utilization of the Distribution System Improvement Charge (DSIC). The DSIC is a Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission allowed charge that water utilities collect from customers for the replacement of aging infrastructure. The increased revenue was partially offset by higher operation and maintenance expenses and depreciation. Income taxes decreased due to higher deductions from the IRS tangible property regulations.

During the first three months of 2022, the Company invested $7.5 million in capital projects for routine items and wastewater treatment plant construction as well as various replacements and improvements to infrastructure. The Company estimates it will invest an additional $35.3 million in 2022, excluding acquisitions, for armoring and replacing the spillway of the Lake Williams dam, additional main extensions, and routine improvements to its pipes, service lines, and other facilities to ensure a safe, adequate, and reliable supply of drinking water and to maintain proper handling and disposal of wastewater for the Company’s growing customer base.
