BERWICK, Pa. (June 2, 2020) – Pennsylvania American Water today announced upgrades to more than 3,100 feet of water main in Berwick to improve reliability for customers, reduce service disruptions, and increase water flows for firefighting. The cost of the system improvements, which replace water main dating as far back as 1937, is approximately $540,000.
“To continue providing reliable water service to our customers, we need to reinvest in the local water infrastructure, particularly in areas where century-old pipe needs to be replaced,” said Michael Spaide, senior supervisor, Pennsylvania American Water. “This significant investment is necessary to rehabilitate and upgrade the area’s aging water infrastructure so that our customers continue to receive quality, reliable water service for years to come.”
