Welcome to Pennichuck.

Pennichuck Corporation is engaged primarily in the collection, storage, treatment and distribution and sale of potable water in southern and central New Hampshire. We have two business segments: regulated water utility operations and non-regulated water management services. Regulated water utility revenues constituted 93% of our revenues in 2010. We are headquartered in Merrimack, New Hampshire, which is located approximately 45 miles north of Boston, Massachusetts. Our Company, which was incorporated in New Hampshire in 1852, became a utility holding company in 1983, when it completed a reorganization resulting in the transfer of all of our water utility assets at that time to Pennichuck Water.

Pennichuck Corporation is a holding company with five wholly owned operating subsidiaries. The Company is comprised of three private water utilities, Pennichuck Water Works Inc., Pennichuck East Utility, Inc. and Pittsfield Aqueduct Company, Inc. that are regulated by the New Hampshire Public Utilities Commission, and two non-regulated companies, Pennichuck Water Service Corporation and The Southwood Corporation.

Pennichuck Water Works, Inc., our principal subsidiary, was established in 1852 and serves the City of Nashua, New Hampshire and 10 surrounding New Hampshire municipalities located in southern New Hampshire with an estimated population of 110,000, almost 10% of the population of the State of New Hampshire.
  Pennichuck Water Service Corporation is in the contract operations field. Currently, PWSC has operations and management agreements with the towns of Hudson, NH and Salisbury, MA. PWSC is the certified operator for many non-community water systems, providing laboratory testing, monitoring and consulting services.
Pennichuck East Utility, Inc. was organized in 1998 and serves 19 communities most of which are located in southern and central New Hampshire.
Pittsfield Aqueduct Company, which we acquired in 1998, serves customers in the town of Pittsfield, New Hampshire.
