ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP

We have a consistent history of complying with, and in many cases surpassing, the standards set by environmental laws and regulations. In fact, this is the foundation on which we build our environmental performance. We strive to not just meet, but exceed the environmental expectations of our stakeholders and establish new benchmarks by which others in our industry will be measured.

Our commitment to the environment extends beyond the quality of our water into the heart of who we are - your local water company. We are stewards of the communities we serve, and we are proud of the role we play in protecting our environment.

Protecting Drinking Water Supplies

Our top priority at Pennsylvania American Water is to provide high quality, reliable water service for our customers. Collaborative efforts to protect sources of water used as drinking water supplies are an important part of maintaining high quality water, and we are working to further these efforts in the communities we serve.

Environmental Grant Program

Our commitment to protecting the environment runs deep and we’re proud to support the efforts of local organizations that share our vision. Established in 2005, our annual Environmental Grant Program offers funding for innovative, community-based environmental projects that improve, restore or protect the watersheds, surface water and groundwater supplies in our local communities. To date, we have donated more than $490,000 to fund more than 100 projects to protect and improve the environment across the Commonwealth.
