During the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, the health and safety of municipal authority customers and their employees is PMAA’s top priority as they provide essential services like drinking water, wastewater, trash disposal and other critical community services to homes and businesses across the Commonwealth.
In an effort to mitigate impacts of COVID-19, PMAA encourages municipal authorities to initiate continuity of operations and preparedness response plans, as well as enact measures to assist anticipated economic impact on customers, including but not limited to the below guidance:
• Placing moratorium on shutoffs
• Restoring service to previously shutoff customers
• Suspending or waiving late charges or fees
• Instituting payment assistance plans
PMAA continues to monitor and evaluate updates from and consult daily with state and federal agencies, as well as other appropriate organizations, and will provide additional guidance, as necessary, to support municipal authorities, their employees and the communities they serve.
Thank you for your dedication in keeping your customers, employees and communities safe while maintaining reliable service during this critical time.
