The Philadelphia Water Department (PWD) serves the Greater Philadelphia region by providing integrated water, wastewater and stormwater services.
The Philadelphia Water Department strives for sustainable utility operations to ensure that we are capable of meeting the social, economic and environmental demands of a 21st Century water utility.
We want you to get involved! The Philadelphia Water Department provides many opportunities for you to learn about water and play a part in the health of our rivers and streams, the source of your drinking water.
In November 2012, Philadelphia voters approved an amendment to the Charter to allow City Council to establish, by ordinance, an independent rate-making body responsible for fixing and regulating rates and charges for water and sewer services.
