Municipalities' protest against wastewater treatment sale rejected

Aug 4, 2021

The state Public Utility Commission rejected protests from five municipalities against the $235 million sale of York City's wastewater treatment system to a private operator.

Calling the protests "premature," the commission alleged that it could not accept the filings because it has not yet officially accepted the application from Pennsylvania American Water Co., which is looking to purchase the wastewater system.

"Until an application is formally accepted by the Commission, comments or protests are not timely because the full filing/case does not yet exist," PUC spokesperson Nils Hagen-Frederiksen said in a statement.
