RE: THE SALE OF THE YORK CITY SEWER SYSTEM TO PA AMERICAN WATER 

Dear Honorable (Last Name): 

My name is (your first and last name) and I am a resident of (Township/Borough name) and live in your district.  

I am writing to you today in opposition of the sale of the York City Sewer System to PA American Water for $235 million.  This sale will result in an unreasonable increase in sewer rates within my municipality.   Historical data shows that PA American’s Zone 1 rates are 2-3 times higher than most of the rates being charged by the municipalities that currently connect into the City of York Wastewater Treatment Plant.     I respectfully request your join the York Area Regional Sewer Authority’s protest at the PUC and assist them in ensuring that your constituents are protected from unfair rate increases as a result of this record-breaking purchase price.  

Sincerely, 

(Your First & Last Name)
