West Kittanning Municipal Authority was formed according to the Pennsylvania Municipality Authorities Act in 1952.  A municipal authority is a government agency founded by a municipal entity (West Kittanning Borough) to meet specific needs of the founding municipality. In our case, it is to provide water service to the community of West Kittanning.

It is governed by a Board of Directors appointed by the founding municipality and is a separate legal and functional entity.  We are required to meet all standards for public safety and environmental protection as regulated by state and federal environmental laws.

A municipal authority, by law, is a non-profit entity, receives no direct taxpayer funding, pays no sales tax and is eligible for low-cost financing and grants that are available for government entities. A municipal authority isn’t controlled by the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission, but rates must be set according to state standards for municipal authorities. We are required to meet all standards for public safety and environmental protection as regulated by state and federal environmental laws.

In this way, a municipal authority is able to run in a cost-effective and efficient manner that results in affordable rates for public services such as the water that we provide to the residents of West Kittanning Borough.
