Pennsylvania American Water, City of York and York City Sewer Authority Invite Customers to Participate in Telephonic Public Input Hearing on Wastewater System Acquisition

Mar 14, 2022

Current and potential future customers can provide input on the company’s application to acquire the system.

Pennsylvania American Water, the City of York, and the York City Sewer Authority will join the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC) to hear public comment on Pennsylvania American Water’s recent application to acquire the York City Sewer Authority, which serves more than 13,000 direct customers, in addition to providing bulk (wholesale) wastewater service to the townships of Spring Garden, Manchester, West Manchester, York, and Springettsbury, and the boroughs of North York and West York.

Pennsylvania American Water is the water provider for several nearby areas, including Fairview Township and Mechanicsburg, and is established in the community as a trusted local utility service provider. According to city officials, the wastewater system sale agreed upon in April 2021 is important for the city to secure important resources for the community and be relieved of the financial burden of upgrading the aging wastewater system to meet more rigorous regulations.

Additional details about the proposed acquisition and potential future rate impact were included in a notice mailed to all Pennsylvania American Water customers and all current York City Sewer Authority customers in September and October 2021.
