We are pleased to present the 2019 Consumer Confidence (Water Quality) Report


Office hours are Monday to Friday 8:00am to Noon and 12:30pm to 4:00pm.

Hauled Waste Receiving Hours: 7:00am to 5:30PM, Monday - Thursday and 7:00am to 4:00pm Friday.

At this time, MAWSA offices will remain closed to walk-in traffic until further notice. The office will be staffed normal hours to serve our customers and provide our operations team with everything they need to provide the continuum of water and wastewater on a 24/7 basis.

It is our hope that this action will help to protect the health and well-being of the public we serve and our vital staff.

Aauthorization has been given for outside inspections of new or replacement water/sewer lines while an interior inspection program is being tested.

Buyers and sellers approaching settlement of a real estate transaction may need to generate an agreement between involved parties on responsibility of repairs (if any are found) during a future MAWSA inspection until such time as a safe interior inspection plan is in place. During this time, MAWSA will keep track of transactions and will reach out for inspection as we are able.

Changes to this policy may occur as new safety guidelines rise and new cases of the virus decline.

At this time all cash payments are being accepted at the Ephrata National Bank, Manheim Branch at 1 North Penryn Road. Drive through access is available. Check and money order payments may be dropped at the MAWSA office in either porch payment slot, or at the Ephrata National Bank Manheim Branch.

The Authority accepts the following payments over the phone; check, bank draft,  and Credit Card. Our processing company collects $4.95 per credit card payment only. All other accepted forms of payment are at no additional charge.
