WCA Owner/Tenant Contact Update Form

(click here)

Maintaining current contact information helps the board and its committees reach owners and tenants with important board announcements as well as during emergency events such as a water/gas main break or to report storm damage to vehicles or other property.  Each owner and paying tenant should complete a separate form.  Non-resident owners should enter their address at the end of the form.  Note: You do NOT need to have a Google account in order to update and submit the form.

June 5th 2012 – AQUA VA/RELAC Rate Hearing Update

On June 5th, 2012, Mr. Dick Kennedy of Waterview Cluster attended the RELAC Rate Hearing in Richmond, VA before the State Corporation Commission [SCC].  For those residents just becoming familiar with the controversies surrounding the RELAC system, the SCC is the governing body which regulates utilities in Virginia.  Mr. Kennedy testified as a user upset with the unreasonably high cost of the system and its effectiveness.  The hearing lasted from about 10:00 AM until 3:30 PM.  
The result of this hearing was that the SCC Staff and AQUA agreed by stipulation to a REDUCED rate increase from AQUA’s original request of $108,775 to $78,000 (approx. a 15% increase from our current rate) that will be in effect as an interim rate for the rest of 2012. 
The SCC staff questioned AQUA at length and in detail on the performance output by AQUA’s records and AQUA’s records on customer complaints, which appeared to have clear deficiencies.
Mr. Kennedy also questioned the issue of their Aqua’a proposed Cooling Tower installation, to which AQUA responded that they have not decided yet to in stall them.  Aqua stated the installation would cost $250,000 to $400,000.  It may be that AQUA America owns the cooling towers and are proposing to sell them to AQUA RELAC, but this is not confirmed.
