SCRANTON, PA. (May 14, 2018) – Pennsylvania American Water announced today the lifting of the voluntary conservation notice for customers in its Susquehanna/Hallstead Service Area. The conservation notice was issued for Pennsylvania American Water customers on December 1, 2017 due to decreasing water levels.


“Supply levels at our water sources have returned to normal levels,” said Don Kessler, senior manager of Field Operations, Pennsylvania American Water. “Winter snowfall and recent rain events helped ease conditions. We continue to monitor our water supplies and urge our customers to use water wisely.”


This notice applies only to Pennsylvania American Water customers in the following areas: Hallstead; Susquehanna; Great Bend; Lanesboro; Great Bend Township; Oakland Township.


“We appreciate our customers’ assistance in following the conservation restrictions,” said Kessler. “The customers’ efforts helped offset any potential supply shortage.”
