The Summit Township Water Authority was established in 1972 with the appointment of five volunteer Board members by the Township Supervisors.  Today, in addition to the Board, the Authority consists of a Manager, Assistant Manager, four system operators and two office personnel.

Service is provided to over to 2,000 properties with water that is derived from two sources.  Customers in the northern portion of the Township, along Route 19 and adjacent areas receive water that is purchased in bulk from the City of Erie.  A series of production wells are used to supply the southern portion of the Township as well as the Route 97 corridor.
