Derry Township-based Pennsylvania American Water Co. today announced a nearly $10 million capital investment this year in water storage tanks across the commonwealth.
The company will rehabilitate 13 tanks and erect four structures to increase storage capacity. That work will occur in Allegheny, Berks, Butler, Chester, Lackawanna, McKean, Monroe, Northampton, Susquehanna and Washington counties.
Last year, the Dauphin County company spent $16.5 million to rehab 15 tanks and build nine. It has more than 290 storage tanks across the state.
Pennsylvania American Water, a subsidiary of New Jersey-based American Water Works Co. Inc., is the largest water utility in Pennsylvania. It provides water and wastewater services to about 2.2 million people.
