Proven Accountable

An authority is an independent agency created by a governmental body to carry out a specific enterprise function. In the case of BCWSA this “function” is to provide water and sewer services. How an authority works is unique. There is no tax money involved to sustain an Authority’s operation. Instead any income comes from user pays and from customers who use and pay for our services.

An Authority borrows the funds for capital projects which creates infrastructure that promotes development for the Philadelphia area.
