Los Angeles, June 5th, 1931 Hr. R. L. Adamson: Referring to executive instructions concerning transfer of water service line Industrial District No. 1 Las Vegas, from accounts of Railroad Company to Water Company: It would seem that if by reason of method of accounting for income purposes, a saving will be effected by transfer of the line serving District No. 1, a perhaps greater saving could be effected if we also transfer line serving Districts 2 and 3. It is my understanding this line is solely used for service to industrial locators. If this understanding is correct, the only expense incident to the change will be the installation of a 6" meter at a point of connection with Railroad line and the cost of removal of industrial meters plus the amount of refunds thereon. We have in mind suggesting to Vice President this transfer. In making such a suggestion we would, of course, mention the cost incident to making the change. Will you please let me have estimate of cost involved. F. H. Knickerbocker. cc Mr. Frank Strong 10
