Right now, Aqua Pennsylvania is using the full force of its corporate power to attempt a hostile takeover of the non-profit, publicly-owned Chester Water Authority (CWA).
If Aqua's takeover attempt is successful, the people served by CWA would likely see their annual water bill go up by hundreds of dollars. And they wouldn't be the only ones to suffer.
We've been told that after its attack on CWA, Aqua is planning on going after Philadelphia's and Pittsburgh's public water systems. Then who knows what community will be next.
But there is hope. A bill has been introduced in the PA General Assembly that would protect CWA, Philadelphia's and Pittsburgh's public water systems, and all of the other well-functioning public water and wastewater systems across the state.
Sign the petition demanding that the General Assembly pass HB 1936 now.
Together we can save Pennsylvania's public water systems.
