Welcome to Chester Water Authority

Ratepayer Savings 2017-2022

At the May 18, 2017 CWA board meeting, the Authority’s board voted unanimously to reject Aqua’s offer of $320M to buy the Authority. The board has been fighting tirelessly against a hostile takeover ever since.

From May 18, 2017 through November 26, 2022, the difference between AQUA base rates and CWA rates results in a savings for CWA customers of over $276M.  This calculation does not include the amount that AQUA would have collected under the PUC approved Distribution System Improvement Charge (“DSIC”).  This is an additional charge that is applied to the bill to accelerate the recovery of AQUA investments in distribution system improvements. If assumed that the DSIC averaged 3% over this period, the additional savings would be as much as $6.7 million.
