Western Berks Water Authority
The Western Berks Water Authority was incorporated on May 22, 1969 under the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Construction of the water treatment plant and transmission system was started in early 1972. Operations commenced in June 1974 and treated water was pumped to customers for the first time on August 1, 1974.
The Authority processes and delivers water in bulk to the Boroughs of Shillington, West Reading, and Wyomissing which, in turn, deliver it to consumers in their municipalities through distribution systems they each maintain.
