The York Water Company to Acquire Beaver Creek Village Water System

Interconnection expected to be complete by end of 2009

Jeffrey R. Hines, president and CEO of The York Water Co., reported that York Water will acquire the Beaver Creek Village water system in Adams County, Pa.

“This new acquisition will provide approximately 167 Beaver Creek customers with ‘That good York water’ and will also improve fire flows in the area,” Hines said.

York Water’s fully filtered and treated water supply will be provided through a water main, which will be constructed by York Water to interconnect with Beaver Creek’s existing distribution facilities. The Beaver Creek customers will pay the same monthly rates as York Water’s customers. Under current rates, Beaver Creek customers pay $36.36 for 4,000 gal of water per month; under York Water’s rates, they will pay $36.47. The interconnection is expected to be complete by the end of 2009. This acquisition marks the seventh water system acquired by York Water since January 2005.
