Maine Water president retires, Knowlton named replacement

SACO, MAINE, March 30, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Maine Water Company (Maine Water) has announced that Richard (Rick) Knowlton will become president of Maine Water, effective April 1, 2017.
Knowlton succeeds Judy Wallingford, who announced her planned retirement as Maine Water’s president last fall. She has been with Maine Water since 1980, and has been president since 1993, at a time when women held very few leadership roles in the drinking water industry. The Maine Water Utilities Association recently honored her with its Lifetime Achievement Award for her contributions to the water industry during the course of her career. Wallingford said one of her favorite career highlights was leading Maine Water in 2016 into a very successful partnership with the Coastal Mountain Land Trust. Together the two organizations were able to forge an agreement that will permanently preserves the company’s watershed land around Mirror Lake and Grassy Pond in the Camden – Rockport area. “Protecting this remarkable resource for future generations is very meaningful for our customers and communities, and to me personally,” Wallingford said. Knowlton has been the vice president of operations since he joined Maine Water in 1993. In his new role, he will oversee the company’s customer service, operations, engineering, water quality and field service teams. Wallingford has high praise for her successor. “I’ve worked alongside Rick for almost twenty-five years. He is a natural and accomplished leader, and he has an intense focus on world-class customer service for customers and communities. Maine Water is in good hands,” Wallingford said. Knowlton has a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from the University of Maine, and an MBA from Northeastern University. Maine Water serves 32,000 customers, or a population of 100,000, in over 20 communities throughout the state of Maine. Maine Water is a subsidiary of Connecticut Water Service, Inc. (NASDAQ:CTWS).

Connecticut Water Continues Investing in Drinking Water Infrastructure

$185 Million Invested over last 10 Years

CLINTON, CONNECTICUT, March 16, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Connecticut Water continues to do its part to maintain water system infrastructure to deliver safe, dependable drinking water. In 2016, more than $60 million was invested in water treatment, aging pipeline replacement, cyber security, and other improvement projects. In 2017, the Company plans to spend $46.7 million to continue enhancing system reliability, water quality, public fire protection, and protecting sensitive data.
A report issued last week by the American Society of Civil Engineers on the nation’s infrastructure reaffirmed the need to invest in drinking water infrastructure. Craig C. Patla, Connecticut Water’s vice president of Service Delivery, stated, “Connecticut Water is at the forefront in replacing aging water infrastructure. The Company has invested $185 million, or nearly $2,000 per customer, over the past 10 years. We understand that our existing water systems will be relied on to serve families and communities into the future.”
In 2016 the company upgraded more than 15.1 miles of old water mains across the state, some close to 100 years old, at a cost of $16.9 million through the Water Infrastructure and Conservation Adjustment (WICA) program. Since the inception of WICA in 2008, Connecticut Water has replaced more than 100 miles of old and undersized water mains, or more than 6% of its distribution system. The company has a goal to achieve a 100 year replacement cycle for water mains. The pipe replaced had an average age of 75 years. Overall, $122 million has been invested through WICA over the past 9 years. “This improves reliability and water quality, reduces lost water through leaks and breaks, and can improve the amount of water available to fire hydrants on the system,” stated Mr. Patla. He added, “The WICA water main replacement work also creates local construction related jobs in the Company’s service areas. An analysis done by the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development estimates that our investment of $16.9 million in the 2016 WICA program supported 176 jobs in Connecticut. The costs of these projects are covered through modest surcharges on customer bills that allow the Company to replace aging pipe on a programmatic basis and begin to recover the cost as the new infrastructure is placed in service to serve customers.” Mr. Patla further stated, “Our state legislators and the Public Utilities Regulatory Authority deserve credit for having the foresight to enable infrastructure replacement through a program such as WICA.” In addition, in 2016, the capital investment funded an ongoing cyber security initiative designed to protect sensitive data on the Company’s computer systems. The 2016 budget also included a major treatment upgrade to the Rockville water treatment facility in Connecticut Water’s largest water system, which serves more than 36,000 customers in north central Connecticut, the upgrades to the Rockville facility are nearing completion and will be in service for the benefit of customers this year. The Rockville facility is Connecticut Water’s oldest surface water treatment plant and has been in service since 1970. This new treatment technology will ensure the Company can continue to deliver a reliable supply of high-quality water that meets drinking water standards for current and future customers. The 2017 capital plan provides for the completion of the upgrade at the Rockville water treatment facility. Also included in the 2017 capital plan is nearly $17 million for aging water main replacement through the WICA program. Nearly 20 WICA projects are planned across the state. The Company recognizes that these investments are ultimately reflected in customers’ rates but considers them essential to ensure that our customers have the water quality and service they deserve. Connecticut Water is a subsidiary of Connecticut Water Service, Inc. ( CTWS) and serves nearly 93,000 customers, or a population of 315,000, in 56 communities throughout the state of Connecticut.

Connecticut Water Service, Inc. Reports 2016 Earnings

Earnings total $2.12 per share in 2016

CLINTON, CONNECTICUT, March 13, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Connecticut Water Service, Inc. (NASDAQ GS: CTWS) announced Net Income of $23.4 million, or earnings per basic average share (EPS) of $2.12, on total revenues of $105.3 million in 2016. Total revenues include revenues generated by the Company’s three business segments: Water Operations, Service and Rentals, and Real Estate. In 2015, the Company had Net Income of $22.8 million, or $2.07 EPS, on total revenues of $103.1 million. 
Net Income in the Company’s core business, the Water Operations segment, was $22.2 million, on revenues of $100.0 million. In 2015, Net Income from the segment totaled $21.0 million, on revenues of $97.5 million. The increase in revenues was related to recovery of costs for completed infrastructure replacement projects through the Water Infrastructure and Conservation Adjustment (WICA) in Connecticut and the Water Infrastructure Charge (WISC) in Maine, as well as a general rate increase in Maine Water’s Biddeford Saco division. A significant driver of the increased earnings was an 8% decrease in Operation and Maintenance expenses in 2016. The decrease was largely related to declines in pension and other compensation benefits, post-retirement medical expenses, use of outside services, and continued focus on cost savings measures and improved efficiency. Acquisitions
On February 27, 2017, the Company completed the acquisition of the Heritage Village Water Company (HVWC) in a transaction with a total enterprise value of $20.7 million. HVWC serves approximately 4,700 water and 3,000 wastewater customers in the communities of Middlebury, Oxford, and Southbury, Connecticut. The wastewater operation is the only wastewater utility in the state regulated by the Connecticut Public Utilities Regulatory Authority (PURA). With the addition of HVWC, CTWS, through its regulated water utility subsidiaries serves more than 129,000 customers, or nearly 440,000 people in 79 communities across Connecticut and Maine, and more than 3,000 wastewater customers in Southbury, Connecticut. On October 11, 2016, the Company entered into an agreement to acquire The Avon Water Company (AWC) in a transaction that reflects a total enterprise value of $36.6 million. AWC serves approximately 4,800 water customers in the communities of Avon, Farmington and Simsbury. A decision by PURA on the proposed acquisition is expected in the second quarter with a closing to follow shortly thereafter.
Since January 2012, CTWS has grown its customer base by more than 44%, or nearly 40,000 customers, primarily through large acquisitions in both Maine and Connecticut. Dividend Increase
On May 13, 2016, CTWS’s Board of Directors approved an increase of 5.6% in its annualized cash dividend, raising the quarterly amount to $0.2825 per share on the Company’s common stock, for an annualized dividend of $1.13. This increase also accelerated the timing of the annual increase which has historically occurred in the third quarter of the year. The acceleration, coupled with the dividend, resulted in a 6.2% increase in 2016 dividends versus 2015. A quarterly cash dividend payment of $0.2825 per common share will be paid to shareholders on March 15, 2017, for shareholders of record as of March 1, 2017. WICA & WISC
In January 2017, Connecticut Water filed for a 1.09% increase in WICA, which, if approved by PURA, would increase the cumulative WICA to 8.25% effective April 1, 2017. Connecticut Water files for WICA increases on a statewide basis. In Maine, Maine Water files for WISC increases with the Maine Public Utilities Commission (MPUC) on a system-by-system basis. The current overall approved cumulative WISC surcharge for all divisions is 6.5%. WICA and WISC allow for recovery of eligible infrastructure replacements on a semi-annual basis. Since the adoption of WICA in 2007, Connecticut Water has replaced more than 100 miles of aging water main with an average age of 75 years. WISC became available in Maine in 2013 and has been used to replace aging water mains and pump stations, construct storage tanks and fund treatment improvements. Other Developments
The pipeline to serve the University of Connecticut’s Storrs Campus (UConn) and the off-campus customers in the Town of Mansfield, Connecticut was placed into service in October 2016 and was activated as a supplemental water source to the University on December 2, 2016. As called for in the Water Supply Agreement with UConn, Connecticut Water acquired approximately 300 off-campus customers that had formerly been served by UConn on the activation date.
The Company’s 2016 Customer Satisfaction Index as measured by an independent research firm was measured at 92.3%. Mr. Thornburg stated, “We are very pleased that our customers are overwhelmingly satisfied with the water and service provided by our companies. Our employees take great pride in serving customers and we appreciate their passion and commitment to customer satisfaction.” CTWS is the largest publicly traded water company based in New England. Through its wholly-owned public water utility subsidiaries, Connecticut Water and Maine Water, the Company currently provides drinking water to more than 129,000 customers in 79 communities. Additional information regarding results, performance or achievements noted in this news release is available in CTWS’s Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 13, 2017.
