Pennsylvania American Water announced today that the company will be hosting an informational meeting regarding the construction of a new water treatment in Wayne Township, Lawrence County, on July 20, 2017, at the Chewton Fire Hall located at 196 Alice Street, in Wampum, Pa.
Pennsylvania American Water representatives will be available for discussion starting at 6 p.m. through 8 p.m. to provide residents with information on the construction process and the new plant’s design, which will increase production capacity, improve reliability and energy efficiency, enhance safety, and ensure compliance with all water quality standards.
