Chester Water Authority
Brief of Amici Curiae

Here is a link to the 1973 agreement.

Here is a link of me questioning the Secretary of DCED on this issue.

Here is a link to a Feb. 28, 2022, letter sent from the law firm of Campbell Durrant to the Receiver for the City of Chester – apparently in response to my questions during the DCED budget hearing a few weeks before.

Here is a link to the April 2022 letter that the Receiver for the City of Chester (who is directly appointed by DCED) sent to the PUC regarding the City’s position on ownership and reversion of certain assets if a sale of DELCORA proceeds.

Rep. Lawrence confronted the Wolf administration with these documents after they denied involvement in sale of Chester Water Authority. Lawrence obtained the records in a Right-to-Know request.
