Waste Utilities

Water & Wastewater Utilities

The Public Utility Commission (PUC) is responsible for regulating Investor and Privately Owned retail water and sewer utilities in the state of Texas. Each year the PUC conducts audits and financial reviews of water and sewer utilities to ensure they possess the financial, managerial and technical capability to provide continuous and adequate service, and that they comply with Commission regulations.

Haynie & Company (formerly known as Abercrombie & Associates, PC) has served this niche accounting market for many years and has the expertise necessary to ensure that Investor and Privately Owned water and sewer utilities meet the strict requirements of the PUC.  Our team of experienced professionals conducts water and sewer utility audits, and prepares the required financial reports needed to accurately file the Water and Wastewater Utilities Annual Report Forms for Class A, B, or C.

In addition to the annual reporting requirements, water and sewer utilities must obtain a Certificate of Convenience and Necessity (CCN), which gives them the exclusive right to provide retail water and sewer utility service to an identified geographic area.  A CCN demonstrates that water and sewer utilities provide continuous and adequate service to every customer who requests service in a certificated area.
