Hood River Electric Light, Power k Water Company
We fully appreciate the manner in which the public approved of our investment and effort in improving the water service, as was
shown by the recent elections. These elections demonstrate conclusively that the people of Hood River believe in fair treatment of large
investments, and they .mark an epoch in the progress of the city.
Our Company is now building a dam, and installing a new modern electric power and lighting-plant, expected to be in operation by
October 1st, which will furnish over 600 horse power, and capable of developing over 3,000 horse power from the same dam. A day
current will be furnished as soon as there is business enough to warrant.
To demonstrate our appreciation of the manner in which the public has approved of our effort in improving the water service, we
take pleasure in announcing that water rates for house service will be reduced from $1.25 to $1.00 per month. This cannot be done now
owing to the extreme heavy expense being incurred, but will be effective within twelve months, and probably by January 1st, 1906.
The rates for all classes of special service will be adjusted to correspond with the service rendered, and the rates made to compare with,
the rates in other cities.
We thank our many friends for their support and patronage. HOOD RIVER ELECTRIC LIGHT, POWER & WATER CO.
By H. F. Davidson, President.
