Sappey to host update on Proposed Sale of Chester Water Authority

State Rep. Christina Sappey, D-Chester, today announced she will be hosting a virtual community update on the proposed sale of the Chester Water Authority at 6 p.m. on January 14. The presentation is open to residents of the 158th Legislative District and will also include legislative initiatives designed to support local public and well-managed water authorities.

“We need to work together to save the Chester Water Authority,” said Sappey. “CWA has my full support. This authority has consistently provided us with clean water and open space, and it’s a fiscally solvent operation. I look forward to providing residents an update on where this situation stands currently.”

During the previous legislative session, Sappey introduced and cosponsored legislation to provide ratepayers with additional rights for their water supply, including the requirement for a ratepayer referendum before an approved sale. She plans to reintroduce this legislation this term.

To RSVP to the event and receive a link to watch, residents should register here, call her district office at 484-200-8264 or email
