Case Background

On June 24, 2013, Lake Osborne Waterworks, Inc. (LOWI or Utility) filed an application for the transfer of Certificate No. 053-W on behalf of Aqua Utilities Florida, Inc. (Aqua) in Palm Beach County.  The service area is located in the South Florida Water Management District and is subject to a year-round irrigation rule.  According to Aqua’s 2012 Annual Report, the Utility serves 462 water customers.


The present application for transfer approval is one of six active applications that have been simultaneously filed with the Commission.  These applications request transfer approval of water and wastewater systems previously owned by Aqua in five different counties.  LOWI, along with the other five transfer applications, have been recently created, and share common management and ownership.

According to its 2012 Annual Report, Aqua had total revenues of $15,773,003 ($9,646,699 for water and $6,126,304 for wastewater).  It provided service to 62 water systems and 30 wastewater systems within 17 counties.  Water and wastewater rates for most of the Aqua systems were last approved in 2012 in a file and suspend rate case.[1]  Recently, Aqua made a decision to cease operations in the state.  As a result, 53 water systems and 26 wastewater systems owned by Aqua have been transferred to non-jurisdictional entities.  The remaining nine water systems and four wastewater systems owned by Aqua have not yet been transferred and are the subject of the six applications discussed above.

Certificate No. 053-W was originally granted on January 1, 1972, under the name of Lake Osborne Utilities Company.[2]  There was a transfer of the water certificate in 1972,[3] from Lake Osborne Utilities Company to Lake Osborne Utilities Company, Inc.[4]  In 1997, there was a transfer from Lake Osborne Utilities, Inc. to Crystal River Utilities, Inc.[5]  In 1999, there was approval of a Transfer of Majority Organizational Control.[6]  In 2004, a fictitious name change as approved to Aqua Utilities Florida, Inc.[7]  In 2006, there was an additional name change approved.[8]  In 2009, additional territory was approved extending water service to Lake Osborne.[9]

This recommendation addresses the transfer of the water system, the net book value of the water system at the time of transfer, and whether an acquisition adjustment should be approved.  The Commission has jurisdiction pursuant to Section 367.071, Florida Statutes (F.S.).

           


Discussion of Issues

Issue 1

 Should the Commission approve the transfer of Aqua Utilities Florida, Inc., water system and Certificate No. 053-W to Lake Osborne Waterworks, Inc.?

 

Recommendation

 Yes.  The transfer of Aqua’s Palm Beach County water system and the transfer of Certificate No. 053-W to Lake Osborne Waterworks, Inc., (LOWI) is in the public interest and should be approved effective the date of the Commission vote.  The resultant order should serve as LOWI’s certificate and should be retained by the Utility.  The Utility’s existing rates and charges should remain in effect until a change is authorized by the Commission in a subsequent proceeding.  The tariff pages reflecting the transfer should be effective on or after the stamped approval date on the tariff sheets, pursuant to Rule 25-30.475(1), Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.).  LOWI should be responsible for filing the Utility’s 2013 Annual Report and paying 2014 Regulatory Assessment Fees (RAFs) and should be responsible for filing all future annual reports and RAFs.  (Jopling, Coughlin, Roberts)

 

Staff Analysis:  On June 24, 2013, LOWI filed an application for approval of the transfer of Aqua’s Palm Beach County water system and Certificate No. 053-W on behalf of Aqua.  

The application is in compliance with the governing Statute, Section 367.071, F.S., and Administrative Rules concerning applications for transfer of certificates.  The closing occurred on March 28, 2013, contingent upon Commission approval, pursuant to Section 367.071(1), F.S.

Noticing, Territory, and Land Ownership

            The application contains proof of compliance with the noticing provisions set forth in Section 367.071, F.S., and Rule 25-30.030, F.A.C.  No objections to the transfer were filed with the Commission and the time for doing so has expired.  The application contains a description of the Utility’s water service territory, which is appended to this recommendation as Attachment A.  LOWI does not own or operate any water treatment plant; however, its distribution lines lie within easements and public right-of-ways.  Rule 25-30.037(2)(q), F.A.C., does not apply in this case.

Purchase Agreement and Financing

Pursuant to Rule 25-30.037(2)(h) and (i), F.A.C., the application contains a copy of the Purchase Agreement, which includes the purchase price, terms of payment, and a list of the assets purchased.  There are no customer deposits, guaranteed revenue contracts, developer agreements, customer advances, leases, or debt of Aqua that must be disposed of with regard to the transfer.  According to the Purchase Agreement, the total purchase price is $119,232 was paid for the portion of the assets attributable to water service.  

 

Facility Description and Compliance

 

The Utility’s water system resells finished water that is obtained from the City of Lake Worth.  It does not own or operate any water treatment facilities and its distribution lines lie within easements and public right-of-ways.  In its application, LOWI stated that after reasonable investigation, the water system acquired from Aqua, is in satisfactory condition.  Staff contacted the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) concerning the Utility’s compliance status relative to any Notices of Violation or any DEP consent orders.  DEP stated that the system is not subject to any outstanding violations or consent orders.

Technical and Financial Ability

 

Pursuant to Rule 25-30.037(1)(j), F.A.C., the application contains statements describing the technical and financial ability of the applicant to provide service to the proposed service area.  According to the application, LOWI has considerable Florida-specific expertise in private utility ownership within the state.  The directors of LOWI have been in the water and wastewater utility management, operations, and maintenance industry for many years, providing service to more than 550 Florida facilities throughout their careers.  Further, the application indicates that the President and Vice President of LOWI have 28 and 36 years, respectively, of operation or ownership of utilities, including a number of utilities previously regulated by the Commission.  Staff also reviewed the personal financial statements for the President and Vice President of LOWI[10] and did not identify any concerns.  The application indicates that operating, billing, collection, and customer services will be provided by contract through an affiliated entity, U.S. Water Services Corporation (U.S. Water), which currently provides such services to utilities serving approximately 80,000 customers in Florida.  The President of U.S. Water is part owner of other systems regulated by the Commission, including Harbor Waterworks, Inc.,[11] Lakeside Waterworks, Inc.,[12] LP Waterworks, Inc.,[13] and several of the systems previously owned by Aqua.[14]

 

Staff requested a three-year projected budget to further evaluate the ability of LOWI to maintain operations of the Utility going forward.  The projected budget included data on net operating income, cost of capital, and rate base.  The projections are reasonable and include future capital improvements, as well as anticipated increases in costs.  Based on the above, it appears that LOWI has demonstrated the technical and financial ability to provide service to the existing service territory.

 

Rates and Charges

The Utility’s rates and charges were last approved in 2012 in a file and suspend rate case.[15]  In 2013, in accordance with Section 367.0816, F.S., the rates were subsequently reduced to reflect the expiration of rate case expense approved in 2010.[16]  The Utility’s existing rates and charges are shown on Schedule No. 1.  Rule 25-9.044(1), F.A.C., provides that, in the case of a change of ownership or control of a utility, the rates, classifications, and regulations of the former owner must continue unless authorized to change by the Commission.  Therefore, staff recommends that the Utility’s existing rates and charges remain in effect until a change is authorized by the Commission in a subsequent proceeding.

Regulatory Assessment Fees (RAFs) and Annual Reports

 

Staff has verified that the Utility is current on RAFs for the calendar year ended December 31, 2013.  LOWI received an extension to file its 2013 Annual Report.  LOWI should be responsible for filing the Utility’s 2013 Annual Report and paying 2014 RAFs and should be responsible for filing all future annual reports and RAFs.

Conclusion

 

Based on the above, staff recommends that the transfer of Aqua’s Lake Osborne water system is in the public interest, and should be approved effective the date of the Commission vote.  The resultant order should serve as LOWI’s certificate and should be retained by the Utility.  The Utility’s existing rates and charges should remain in effect until a change is authorized by the Commission in a subsequent proceeding.  The tariff pages reflecting the transfer should be effective on or after the stamped approval date on the tariff sheets, pursuant to Rule 25-30.475(1), F.A.C.  LOWI should be responsible for filing the Utility’s 2013 Annual Report and paying 2014 RAF’s and should be responsible for filling all future annual reports and RAFs.

 


Issue 2

 What is the appropriate net book value for LOWI’s water system as of March 28, 2013?

Recommendation

 For transfer purposes, the net book value (NBV) of LOWI’s water system is $120,404, as of March 28, 2013.  Because the difference in the purchase price and the NBV in this instance is de minimis, and LOWI has not requested an acquisition adjustment, staff recommends that no acquisition adjustment be made in this case.  Within 30 days of the date of the final order, LOWI should be required to provide general ledgers which show its books have been updated to reflect the Commission-approved balances as of March 28, 2013.  The adjustments should be reflected in the Utility’s 2013 Annual Report when filed.  (Coughlin) 

Staff Analysis

 The purpose of establishing NBV for transfers is to determine whether an acquisition adjustment should be approved.  The NBV does not include normal ratemaking adjustments for used and useful plant or working capital.  Staff’s recommended NBV as described below, is shown on Schedule No. 2.

 

Utility Plant in Service (UPIS)

 

The Utility’s general ledger reflected a UPIS balance of $265,904, as of March 28, 2013.  Audit staff determined that all Commission adjustments have been properly made.  Therefore, staff recommends a UPIS balance as of March 28, 2013, of $265,904 as shown on Schedule No. 2.

 

Land and Land Rights

 

The Utility is a reseller of water and has no treatment facilities.  Therefore, there is no land or land right balance in Account 303.

Accumulated Depreciation

 

            The Utility’s general ledger reflected an accumulated depreciation balance of $144,357 as of March 28, 2013.  Audit staff determined depreciation accruals to UPIS were not posted in March 2013.  As a result, accumulated depreciation should be increased by $727.  Therefore, staff recommends the Utility’s water accumulated depreciation balance as of March 28, 2013, of $145,084 as shown on Schedule No. 2.

 

Contributions-in-Aid-of-Construction (CIAC) and Accumulated Amortization of CIAC

 

As of March 28, 2013, the Utility’s general ledger reflects CIAC balance of $21,029, respectively, and accumulated amortization of CIAC balance of $20,572.  Audit staff determined that amortization of CIAC accruals were not posted in March 2013.  As a result, accumulated amortization of CIAC should be increased by $41.  Therefore, staff recommends that the Utility’s CIAC balance as of March 28, 2013 of $21,029 and accumulated amortization of CIAC balance of $20,613 as shown on Schedule No. 2.

 


Net Book Value

 

The Utility’s general ledger reflected a NBV of $121,090, as of March 28, 2013.  Based on the adjustments described above and as shown on Schedule No. 2, staff recommends that the NBV for the Utility’s water system as of March 28, 2013, should be $120,404.  Schedule No. 2 also contains the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commission, Uniform System of Accounts balances for UPIS and accumulated depreciation as of March 28, 2013.

 

Acquisition Adjustment

 

            An acquisition adjustment results when the purchase price differs from the NBV of the assets at the time of the acquisition.  Pursuant to Rule 25-30.3071, F.A.C., a positive acquisition adjustment results when the purchase price is greater than the NBV and a negative acquisition adjustment results when the purchase price is less than the NBV.  Rule 25-30.371, F.A.C., further states that a positive acquisition adjustment shall not be included in rate base absent proof of extraordinary circumstances.  Positive acquisition adjustments, if approved, increase rate base.  With respect to negative acquisition adjustments, Rule 25-30.371, F.A.C., states that no negative acquisition adjustment shall be included in rate base if the purchase price is greater than 80 percent of the NBV.   If the purchase price is equal to or less than 80 percent of the NBV, a negative acquisition adjustment shall be included in rate base equal to 80 percent of the NBV, less the purchase price.  Negative acquisition adjustments reduce rate base. The Utility and its assets were purchased for $119,232.  As stated above, staff recommends the appropriate NBV to be $120,404.  Because the difference in the purchase price and the NBV in this instance is de minimis, and LOWI has not requested an acquisition adjustment, staff recommends that no acquisition adjustment be made in this case.

 

Conclusion

 

            Based on the above, staff recommends that the NBV of LOWI’s water system for transfer purposes is $120,404, as of March 28, 2013.  No acquisition adjustment should be included in rate base.  Within 30 days of the date of the final order, LOWI should be required to provide general ledgers which show its books have been updated to reflect the Commission-approved balances as of March 28, 2013.  The adjustments should be reflected in the Utility’s 2013 Annual Report when filed.


Issue 3:  

 Should this docket be closed?

Recommendation

 Yes.  If no protest to the proposed agency action is filed by a substantially affected person within 21 days of the date of the order, a consummating order should be issued and the docket should be closed administratively after LOWI has provided proof that its general ledgers have been updated to reflect the Commission-approved balances, as of March 28, 2013.  (Brownless)

Staff Analysis

 If no protest to the proposed agency action issue is filed by a substantially affected person within 21 days of the date of the order, a consummating order should be issued, and the docket should be closed administratively after LOWI has provided proof that its general ledgers have been updated to reflect the Commission-approved balances, as of March 28, 2013.
