Capital Region Water traces its beginning to 1957, when the Harrisburg City Council created the Harrisburg Sewerage Authority (HSA) to finance and build the area’s first wastewater treatment plant and to make improvements to the city’s sewerage system.
Although our responsibilities have grown in scope and complexity over the years, a few themes stand out. The authority has constantly sought to bring the highest levels of technology and professionalism to its operations. At the same time it has worked to improve the quality of life for all its customers and to enhance and support economic growth.
Capital Region Water has been at the core of providing service to the community. Capital Region Water is probably best known for supplying water to the city and four adjacent communities. However, the Authority’s portfolio contains more than the water system it also owns the Advanced Wastewater Treatment Facility. While much of what we do is out of sight, buried underground or in remote locales, our service to the community through conduit financing is wonderfully evident for all to see.
