         York, Pennsylvania, February 24, 2004:  The York Water Company's
(Nasdaq: YORW) President, Jeffrey S. Osman, announced today that the
Company has achieved record operating revenues and net income for the
year 2003.  Improved revenues and net income are attributed to customer
growth and increased rates, which became effective June 26, 2003.

         President Osman reported that the operating revenues of
$20,889,000 were up 6.8% and that net income of $4,448,000 increased
17.4% compared to 2002.

         During the year, the Company incurred over $11.5 million on
construction projects, primarily on its water distribution system to
expand its service territory, and additionally on the Susquehanna River
pipeline project and various main relinings.  The pipeline project will
connect the Susquehanna River to the Company's Lake Redman.  This major
water project will provide an additional source of supply for the
Company to continue to expand its customer base.  The Company installed
over 79,000 feet of pipe during 2003.

     Operating revenues for the fourth quarter increased $576,000 or
12.2% over the fourth quarter of 2002.  Net income for the fourth
quarter increased $269,000 or 30.6% compared to the fourth quarter 2002,
primarily due to the increase in operating revenues.
