08:31 EDTWTRAqua America announces Virginia acquisitions
Aqua America announced that its Virginia subsidiary has purchased four water systems and a wastewater system in three separate acquisitions. Aqua acquired the water and wastewater system assets of Presidential Service Company. These systems serve about 1,000 people in the Presidential Lakes subdivision in King George, Virginia, and the acquisition marks Aqua’s entry into King George County. Aqua paid $150,000 for the water system and plans to spend about $200,000 in capital improvements over the next couple of years. Aqua paid $1 for the wastewater system, which is under a state consent order because it doesn’t meet environmental regulations. Aqua plans to invest nearly $1.4M to build a new wastewater treatment plant to improve service and bring the system into environmental compliance. Aqua also acquired the water system assets of the Stagecoach Hills public water system. This system serves about 80 people in the Stagecoach Hills subdivision in Fluvanna County. Aqua paid $25,000 for the system and plans to invest another $15,000 to upgrade the system. Aqua also recently acquired the assets of two water systems from the Botetourt Forest Water Corporation for $82,500. These systems serve about 400 people in Blue Ridge, Botetourt County.

17:39 EDTWTRAqua America unit acquires assets of Caroline Water Company
Aqua America announced that its Virginia subsidiary has purchased the water system assets of the Caroline Water Company in Caroline County. The system serves about 3,000 people in the Lake Caroline community in Ruther Glen, Virginia. The Caroline Water Company is Aqua’s ninth regulated utility acquisition so far this year. Aqua paid $1.1M for the water system and plans to spend approximately $1.9M over the next 5 years for capital improvements to the system including major investments in the water treatment plant. Lake Caroline is Aqua’s second surface water plant in Virginia. The plant has been offline since April 2009, and Aqua will install a new water treatment plant and a bulk water storage tank to bring the system into compliance. Currently, water is purchased through an interconnection with the county water system. Lake Caroline is about one mile south of Aqua’s Lake Land’Or water and wastewater systems and provides a cost-effective tuck-in opportunity.
