“Extending the shutoff moratorium for all of our residential customers until next spring is the responsible action in light of continued uncertainty from the pandemic,” said Will Pickering, PWSA Executive Director. “Families that are struggling to stay current on their bills are encouraged to contact us. We have simplified enrollment for our assistance programs and are offering flexible payment arrangements to help reduce unpaid balances. We hope that our customers will take advantage of these programs during this difficult time.”
The extension follows the timeline of PWSA’s winter shutoff moratorium and applies to all customers, regardless of their income.MORE NEWS: New Developments Involving Bethel Park McDonald's Manager Accused Of Sexually Assaulting 14-Year-Old Employee
