Excerpt from The Regulation of Private Water Companies in New York City
I refer to these matters for the purpose Of showing the limita tions imposed by legal and financial conditions upon the com missioner's discretion in regard to the Operation of the municipal water plant, as contrasted with the absence Of such limitations upon his control over the Operations Of the private water companies now to be described.
Private water companies in the state of New York are organized under the transportation corporations law, and, in the absence of special charter provisions governing the granting Of franchises, they have usually secured perpetual rights by the simple process of applying in advance to the local authorities for permission to organize for the purpose of supplying the community with pure and wholesome water. Neither private water companies nor mu nicipal water plants have thus far been brought under the juris diction of the public service commissions of the state, and thus no general machinery has been provided for the control of their rates and service. They are subject to the State Health Depart ment in matters relating to pollution and to the State Conserva tion Commission with respect to the acquisition and development Of additional supplies.
