Just like a municipal utility, regulated water companies like Aqua are responsible for making sure the water is clean and safe and that the infrastructure – the pipes, pumps and treatment facilities – are running efficiently. As the largest regulated water utility in the state, we are committed to providing water services, including delivering safe, reliable water directly at the tap.
Aqua is one of the largest U.S.-based, publicly traded water and wastewater utilities, serving nearly 3 million people in Ohio, Virginia, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Texas, Illinois, New Jersey and Indiana.
Our mission is to protect and provide Earth’s most essential resource. At Aqua America, we know that water is a precious resource – one that plays a critical role in sustaining life. We take seriously our responsibility to protect and provide this essential resource. We are committed to sustainable business practices, excellent customer service, attracting and developing top talent, the strategic growth of our company, delivering shareholder value, investing in technology and infrastructure, and giving back to the communities in which we operate. We do all these with integrity and transparency.
Founded in 1886 in southeastern Pennsylvania, Aqua has more than 130 years of history and experience. Since the first pipe was laid, we have been dedicated to improving infrastructure and supply, whether through building reservoirs and treatment plants to service a growing community or through replacing pipe to strengthen aging systems.
As our nation has grown, so has our company. As early as the 1900s, the company established a growth strategy that serves as its foundation today. That strategy is responsible for developing Aqua into one of the fastest-growing regulated water and wastewater utilities in the country.
Aqua employees are experts at what we do. Municipalities often partner with us because we can efficiently and affordably provide critical water services. Because we provide water in eight states, we have the ability to provide economies of scale and a high level of efficiency. We have the purchasing power to save significantly on the cost of fire hydrants, valves, pipes and meters.
Aqua is equally dedicated to its customers, employees, communities and shareholders, because each represents our success and our potential growth. We earn public trust through integrity, tenacity and the diligence with which we reliably deliver services that are basic to the quality of life we enjoy in the United States – potable water and the disposal of wastewater.
