Report Says Water Utility Surpassed Standards

ROYERSFORD PA – Pennsylvania American Water, which serves customers in the Royersford, Phoenixville, and Norristown areas, issued results Friday (June 12, 2020) of an annual consumer confidence report that it said showed the company’s water quality during 2019 “met or surpassed all standards” set by the federal Environmental Protection Agency and the state Department of Environmental Protection.

The report is available online, here, and is searchable by zip code and distance. Customers also can request a printed copy of their report by calling Pennsylvania American customer service at 800-565-7292.

The report compares the quality of water supplied by Pennsylvania American against drinking water standards established by both agencies. It also provides local drinking water source information and shares test results, including substances detected in the water and their levels. The company collects and tests 15,000 water samples across its systems every month, it added.

The company also recently released a video about the results. It discusses water sampling and testing, drinking water sources, infrastructure improvements, and water system awards.

Pennsylvania American, a subsidiary of American Water, is the largest investor-owned water utility in the state, serving about 2.4 million people.
