 *In a working capital fund, profits one year are returned to the customer in subsequent years via reduced rates.
  Conversely, losses are recouped via increased customer rates in subsequent years. The goal is for the fund to break
  even over extended periods, per working capital fund rules. In FY 2005 and FY 2006, MSC budgeted to incur losses as
  a result of prior year profits.
