Right to Know Request Form

Act 3 of 2008, which took effect January 1, 2009, revised The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s Right To Know Law to provide citizens access to the public records of any state and local agency. Now, a government agency must presume that a record is a public record available for inspection or copying. If the government agency chooses to withhold a record, the agency has the burden to prove – with legal citation – why that record should not be available to the public. If you would like to view any of Chester Water Authority’s public records, please print out the Request form, fill it out, and fax it to 1.610.876.2501 or mail it to Chester Water Authority, PO Box 467, Chester, PA 19016, or bring it to us at 415 Welsh Street in Chester. Any request for records will be answered within five business days of receipt. There may be a cost for copying and mailing responses.

You may also fill out the form below and email your request.  Click Here for a printer-ready copy of this form which you can print out and fax, mail or deliver.
