“Aqua’s 2013 infrastructure improvement projects underscore our continued
efforts to renew and rehabilitate our water and wastewater systems and replace
the aging areas of our distribution systems that deliver water to our

maintaining our systems and protecting public health by complying with state
and federal water quality regulations and providing reliable water and
wastewater service to our customers in the most efficient way possible.”

This year’s program comes on the heels of the company’s 2012 capital program,
which included $259 million in similar improvements throughout the
Commonwealth.
