Compensation for the acquisition of a water company pursuant to section 16-262o shall be determined by the procedures for determining compensation under section 25-42 or by agreement between the parties, provided the Public Utilities Regulatory Authority in consultation with the Department of Public Health, after a hearing, approves such agreement. The provisions of this section shall not apply to the sale of a private water company to a municipally owned and operated water company providing service in such municipality. In such cases, if the parties determine compensation for such acquisition by agreement the sale may proceed without the approval of the Public Utilities Regulatory Authority.
