Interactive map details where 2018 pipeline upgrades are occurring and more
HERSHEY, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pennsylvania American Water today unveiled the updated 2018 version of
its web-based infrastructure map to show customers where the dollars
from their monthly bills are flowing. To coincide with National
Infrastructure Week that runs May 14-21, the company launched the
interactive map displaying planned water and wastewater pipe
improvements along with project details.
“Our team created this innovative tool for customers to see their water
bills at work, and they will notice we have another active year of
infrastructure upgrades underway across the state,” said Pennsylvania
American Water President Jeffrey L. McIntyre. “We are rolling out the
2018 version of the map during National Infrastructure Week to reinforce
the importance of replacing aging water and wastewater systems to ensure
that our communities continue to receive quality, reliable service.”
Accessible from any computer or mobile device, the map appears on
Pennsylvania American Water’s website under the Water Quality tab and
System Updates page at https://amwater.com/paaw/water-quality/system-updates.
It features summaries of pipe upgrades, total dollars invested and
length of pipe being installed. Users can navigate the map by panning
and zooming similar to other popular web-based maps. By clicking on
individual projects, users can see specific project details including
affected streets. Projects shown on the map are expected to be completed
by the end of the year.
McIntyre said 52 cents of every dollar of the customer’s monthly bill is
reinvested into system improvements and replacing aging infrastructure.
“Because most pipe projects are underground, customers are usually not
aware of the improvements taking place. That is why the interactive map
is so helpful to inform customers about upgrades in their area,” he said.
