“Our customers are at the center of everything we do, and we want them to know about and engage in the robust bill assistance programs we offer,” said Pennsylvania American Water President Justin Ladner.
Pennsylvania American Water team members will be on hand to discuss and enroll qualified customers into the program, which offers three primary services:
