Benefits of Working with Aqua

Most Americans have utility services, including gas and electricity, provided by an investor-owned company. Water and wastewater service, however, is typically supplied by municipal or authority-owned systems.

Many municipalities struggle to balance budgets that include a long list of priorities, from water and wastewater infrastructure needs, to schools, police and fire departments, roadways and bridges. For municipalities or authorities, Aqua Pennsylvania can be a partner by integrating water or wastewater systems into Aqua’s existing operations. This gives the municipality an influx of cash to put toward other priorities and alleviates the burden of maintaining their own water and wastewater systems.

In addition, recent fair market valuation legislation in Pennsylvania allows companies like Aqua to pay a fair market amount for municipal water and wastewater systems. This benefits local governments, customers and the environment. Before the passage of this legislation, utilities were often limited to including only the original depreciated cost into their rate base, which became a regulatory barrier to a sale.
