AMERICAN WATER EARNS 90 CENTS A SHARE IN THIRD QUARTER

 AMERICAN WATER EARNS 90 CENTS A SHARE IN THIRD QUARTER
 VOORHEES, N.J., Nov. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- American Water Works Company


(NYSE: AWK) today reported net income to common stock of $27.5 million, or 90 cents a share, for the third quarter of 1991. This compared with earnings of $18.2 million, or 60 cents a share, for the period last year.
 James V. LaFrankie, president of American, said several factors were influential. Water sales volume increased by 6 percent over last year's because of hot, dry late summer weather in the East and Midwest. The earnings improvement also reflected the impact of rate adjustments authorized since last year and lower interest rates for borrowed funds.
 In addition, earnings for the quarter included 6 cents a share in 1991 and 4 cents a share in 1990 related to California regulatory decisions permitting the recovery of revenues lost due to mandatory water rationing.
 Net income to common stock through September was $58.6 million, or $1.91 a share, compared with $40.4 million, or $1.33 a share, for the first nine months of 1990.
