The York Water Co. today reported first-quarter earnings of
$1.2 million, down 9 percent compared to last year’s first quarter.

The decline came from slow customer growth, a decline in
per-capita consumption and higher operating expenses that included wages and
health insurance, according to the York-based utility.

Basic earnings per common share were 11 cents — down from
12 cents in 2007’s first quarter.

Analysts had expected 14 cents per share.

The company’s operating revenues were $7.5 million, which
grew 1.6 percent from the year-ago quarter.

York Water is in the process of finishing an application to
increase water rates next year.

Its shares are traded on the Nasdaq under the ticker symbol
YORW.
