The Berks County Water and Sewer Association (BCWSA) is a nonprofit organization, created in 2013. The Association was initiated by a group of concerned municipal officials through the Berks Municipal Partnership, County of Berks Commissioners and Planning Commission, Center for Excellence in Local Government, water and sewer service providers, Greater Reading Economic Partnership and the economic development community.
