Actually they could be a single enterprise fund as well as a non-profit, because they are serving a community purpose or function. Furthermore, the proceeds to the fund are being used to fund the water system and are not intended to be profits to the entity or any individual. There are many corporations out there that are single enterprise funds but are also non-profit due to their purpose and mission of the services that they provide.
