Aqua North Carolina currently provides water and wastewater service to about 250,000 people in 46 counties across the Tar Heel State.
In addition, Aqua Pennsylvania, Inc. acquired the wastewater system serving the Newlin Greene residential development, which is home to nearly 150 people in Newlin Township, Chester County. The system will be operated by Little Washington Wastewater Company, a subsidiary of Aqua Pennsylvania.
