HERSHEY, Pa. (AP) - Pennsylvania American Water says it will spend about $6.7 million to upgrade 15 existing municipal water storage tanks across the state.

Thursday’s announcement comes after the company spent $10 million last year to build four new tanks and rehabilitate 13 others. In all, the utility owns 290 storage tanks in Pennsylvania.

The work being done this year ranges from a 7.2-million gallon ground storage tank in West Mifflin, Allegheny County, near Pittsburgh, to a 100,000-gallon elevated tank in North Franklin Township, Washington County.

The work includes two other tanks in Washington County, another in Allegheny County, two in Lackawanna County, and one each in Bucks, Chester, Dauphin, Jefferson, Lawrence, Luzerne, McKean, and Montgomery counties.

Pennsylvania Water is the largest utility in the state, with about 2.2 million customers.
