Alexandria Concern Refutes
Complaints of Users
Against Its Service.
Twenty-seventh and Thirtieth Degrees
in Masonry Are Conferred on
Large Class of Candidates.
R. KKnih &Ue,
Tx A Suest
Alexandria, Va.. March 23.-Charles X.
Broun, of Roanoke. has been designated
by the State Corporation Commission to
come to Alexandria, on April 6. for the
purpose of taking the testimony of the
water consumers who complain of the
service furnished by the Alexandria
Water Company.
Through its attorney, Gardner L.
Boothe, who is associated with Col. F.
L Smith, th Alexandria Water Com
pany in its answer to the petitions filed
by the consumers, makes a sweeping de
nial of the charges made. The consum.
er. want better service and cheaper
The company cites that its charter was
granted by an act of the legisLgture in
180, and denies that the commisiTon has
any power to exercise jurisdiction and
regulation of the water company. It de
nies that It has a monoply of supplying
water to the people of Alexandria. and
declares that the same can be and is be
ing furnished by other parties.
In reference to the purity of the water
the company states that since June, 1914.
is has established a chlorine plant for the
purpose of destroying any bacteria that
might be in the water.
Reference Is made to the new reser
voir and dam, built at a cost of 3200000,
as an answer to the statement that there
is not a sufficient supply of water. This
new work gives a storage capacity of
60.0,00 gallons, sufficient to supply the
sity of Alexandria with one year's con
sumption, and the company says that as
soon as its financial condition will per
mit, this reservior will be connected with
the city supply.
The claim in reference to the high por
tion of the city not being supplied with
water because they are higher than the
reservoir is met by the announcement
that the company has purchased the
high service system of the Rosemont
Development Company, on King street
e, ended, from which it proposes to sup
ply the consumers of Rosemont and
George Washington Park as desired.
The company makes a complete denial
of the statement that sufficient water is
not furnished, for fire protection, owing
to the size of the Mhains. It declares that
the mains are of sufficient site but if
there is a lack of watlr it is caused by
the small openings from the main to
the fire hydrants.. The company declares
its intention to construct a new 12-inoh
main on Madison street from Washing
ton to Fairfax street which will augment
the supply of water available for fire
use. but it is unable to do so because
of the failure of the city to grade Mad
ison street.
The company declares that it is un
able to make any plans, for furnishing
water for the annexed territory-until the
city has designated the streets to be
laid off and the grades established.
A denial is made of the right of the
rorporation Commission to change the
regulation of the company in reference
to the collection of water rents in ad
The same position is taken in refe'
ence to the rates charged hv the com
pany, but a statement is attached show
ing the rates in 37, cities of the rnited
States in which it is claimed that the
rates of the Alexandria Water Company
are as low if not lower than te average
rate charged by all the private owned
companies in the United States.
In reference to the charge that the
earnings of the company are beyond a
fair return upon the investment, the com
pany answers that while it is true the
affairs have been managed in an eco
nomical manner and that 'the company
i prosperous. that no dividends were
declared for many years after its incor
poration. The company ha- on hand a
cash halance of iss than Slw and has
a floating debt of 1225", hearing inter
est at the rate of 5 per cent.
In answer to the charge that the com
pany has purchased real estate in ex
cess of the amount to which it is en
titled by the charter, it is stated that the
only land purchased has been reservoirs.
storage sheds, etc.
