We've made significant strides, together
University Park’s water quality is again meeting state and federal drinking water benchmarks for the six-month monitoring period that ended in December 2021. As we continue our treatment efforts, this progress reflects improvements that were made possible thanks to coordination with the nation’s top water chemistry experts, state and federal regulators and you – our valued customers.
We previously waived water bills and waived or capped sewer bills while we laid the foundation for
water quality improvements – a decision that was unprecedented by any water provider. We offered
these temporary adjustments as an outward expression of our goodwill and customer care. As we
continue to rebuild with you, serving you remains our highest priority.
Standard water billing policies resumed for advisory-area customers on Jan. 14, 2022, and we continue to operate from a place of support.
We're here for our valued customers
We know that rebuilding trust takes time, and you can rely on us for continued support. We want to
