Wolf Admin, Aqua ‘Waging War’ on Public Utilities in Distressed Communities, CWA Says

The Chester Water Authority is accusing Gov. Tom Wolf and the Chester City Receiver of “waging a war” against the public utility, one the CWA says will cost ratepayers millions. And, they add, this war is coming to public utility ratepayers in Act 47 communities across the state.

The Delaware Valley Journal covered this story in an online article published February 3, 2022.

Here is a quote from the article, written by Michael Graham:

“The CWA released a series of redacted emails it claims ‘prove the Governor’s Office was behind a statewide program to sell off the water and sewer authorities of municipalities with distressed pension plans.’ The emails, dating back to July 2020 show communications between Michael T. Doweary, Receiver for the city of Chester, and Christopher Frankin, CEO of Aqua America, more than a year before the courts had ruled on whether the city had the power to sell the authority.”
