Capital Region Water

Capital Region Water Provider of Drinking Water, Wastewater, and Stormwater Services to the Harrisburg Area. We're investing in our community from raindrop to river.

We'll be using this page to keep our customers posted with alerts, news, pictures, and more. We want our customers to be informed and show them their water bills at work.

Operating as usual

This week several properties on the 1700 block of Penn Street received communication of a Hydrant Replacement. Upon further inspection, digging and replacing the hydrant and the associated piping is not necessary at this time. Please disregard the notification.

At every opportunity, Capital Region Water attempts to coordinate the phasing of projects and repairs with the City of Harrisburg and other utilities. However, a hydrant in need of repair does become an elevated task for the protection of public safety, and it is not always possible to coordinate.

We apologize for the miscommunication, and related inconvenience this has put on those residents. Thank you for your understanding as we invest in this critical infrastructure.

Congratulations to Shane Russell for being named March Employee of the month! He’s awarded for his excellent work and dedication to our team for the month of March 2021. Over the past year, Shane spatially aligned and scaled more than 100 individual legacy sewer paper maps for the creation of a single GIS map layer available through CityWorks. This digitized format will enhance situational awareness and aid in faster and more complete responses from field personnel, especially in emergency conditions, and will continue to provide better infrastructure system information to CRW for many years to come.
Shane's innovativeness and fortitude to see this project through completion
has demonstrated a strong commitment to our core values and a willingness to strive to make our organization better, thereby earning this prestigious award.

Let’s show Shane some love!

Does anyone else in Harrisburg have a water bill out of normal range for a one person, one bath home? Usage went from 2k gal a month to 140k gal. Had them come out to ensure nothing is wrong with the meter, did a dye test, looked for leaks, and have had a plumber certify there are no leaks and they still will not adjust the bill.
