Reading, PA – Today, the Reading Area Water Authority issued the following statement in response to the closing of the Administrative Office located at 1801 Kutztown Road for the purposes of disinfection and sanitization as a precautionary measure after an employee tested positive for Covid-19 earlier this week.
“Earlier today, in consultation with the Chairman of the Board Steve McCracken and Solicitor Ed Stock, I announced the temporary closure of the Administration Office and ordered all “administrative” employees to work from home until further notice. Our maintenance vendor will be performing a disinfection and sanitization procedure. The Administrative Office will remain closed until it is determined to be safe.”
The public has had very limited access to the lobby for the past few months. Policies and procedures have been in place and adhered to for several months. Customers are directed to call (610) 406-6300 and leave a message and a Customer Service Representative will return your call as quickly as possible. We do not anticipate any disruption in our services.
RAWA fully understands the importance of the services we provide to our customers and are committed to providing a safe and clean work environment for our employees.
“I want to thank our employees for their cooperation and for acting promptly in the best interest of everyone and their sensitivity in handling this situation.”
Please STAY SAFE.
Updates will be posted on our Facebook page and our website.
