Pennsylvania American Water and Royersford Borough will join the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC) to hear public comment on Pennsylvania American Water’s recent application to acquire the Royersford Borough wastewater system assets. Royersford’s system serves approximately 1,600 wastewater customers in Montgomery County, and Pennsylvania American Water is already the water provider in the area. According to Borough officials who agreed to the wastewater system sale in December 2019, the proceeds of the sale will support local economic priorities and fund the long-term needs of the Borough. Additional details about the proposed acquisition and potential future rate impact were included in a notice mailed to all Pennsylvania American Water customers and all current Royersford Borough customers in September and October.
