    Water Authority Encourages Customers to Refill from the Tap July 16 2015 North Penn Water Authority Encourages Customers to Refill from the Tap In an effort to encourage Environmental Stewardship NPWA is providing customers with reusable stainless steel insulated water bottles Lansdale Pa July 16 2015 In its commitment to Environmental Stewardship North Penn Water Authority NPWA has launched Refill From The Tap an environmentally conscious campaign encouraging NPWA customers to use a double walled stainless steel insulated water bottle compliments of NPWA to refill from the tap instead of buying one time use plastic water bottles In celebration of its 50th Anniversary the Authority will be providing water bottles to any customer who wants one at their Operations Center 300 Forty Foot Road Towamencin They will also be distributed at the Authority s 50 th Anniversary Open House event on September 10 2015 from 3 00 p m to 7 00 p m and at local community events For a list of community events go to www npwa org In honor of our 50 th Anniversary we are happy to provide our customers with a simple way to help our environment and encourage them to Refill from the Tap with NPWA tap water said Anthony J Bellitto Jr P E executive director North Penn Water Authority Not only do we want to ensure that our valuable resources are protected for generations to come we know it can also help our customers save money NPWA tap water costs our customers only one cent per two gallons making our water the best bargain in town Refilling from the Tap can help protect our environment Only one in six plastic water bottles is recycled in the U S Once in a landfill a bottle can take up to 500 years or more to disintegrate There are many reasons for pollution but small simple steps can make an impact Today bottled water is the second most popular commercial beverage in the United States and while over 750 million people in the world still lack safe tap water this is definitely not the case for North Penn Water Authority customers Refilling from the tap can also save customers a lot of money In the U S a typical 16 oz water bottle costs about 1 while NPWA tap water costs about one penny for 2 gallons making bottled water up to 2 000 times more expensive than NPWA tap water North Penn Water Authority s commitment to Environmental Stewardship branches far beyond Refill from the Tap and is driven by sustainable practices that meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs NPWA supports local watershed groups in their efforts to protect water resources and teaches the community and area students about good water practices Proactive maintenance and care of the water system to prevent water waste along with these other efforts all contribute to this goal For more information visit www RefillFromTheTap com or

  • North Penn Water Authority - Committed to Providing Safe, Reliable, and Economical Water - Director: NP Water Authority’s ‘water quality is excellent and the water is safe’
    really is the bottom line of this report he said Chlorine was found at levels between 0 94 parts per million from well water and 1 16 parts per million leaving the Forest Park treatment plant with levels on the average of 0 7 parts per million found throughout the distribution system The presence of chlorine is expected in all three places because it s an additive used to control microbe growth in the water The requirements get more difficult every year and the challenge is to make sure we meet the ever more stringent requirements It s a challenge that we are up to and we accomplish he said Two other disinfection by products were also found throughout the distribution system bromate was found at an average of 1 4 ppm Haloacetic Acids HAAs were found at roughly 7 66 ppm and total Trihalomethanes were found at 22 8 ppm all expected levels due to their uses in water disinfection processes according to Bellitto The requirement to produce such a detailed report is something EPA requires us to provide to our customers so information about where the source is how it s treated why it s treated and what are the parameters we test for he said Traces of arsenic were found at wells and at the Forest Park plant during the 2012 14 window and that comes with a caveat those levels fall below the federal Environmental Protection Agency s specified standards which balance the current understanding of health effects caused by arsenic against the cost to remove it Possible sources of the arsenic levels between zero and five parts per million with an average level of one ppm are several erosion of naturally occurring deposits runoff from local orchards or arsenic produced from the production of glass and electronics It s all about the concentration for arsenic the average level detected was one and the MCL maximum contaminant level is 10 so that s far below the maximum Bellitto said There is no public water supply that has zero of anything in it It s not distilled water that we are delivering to our customers that has absolutely nothing in it The nature of our arsenic is that it s at extremely low levels he said Trace levels of three other inorganic compounds were also found at low levels nitrates were found at levels between zero and 4 5 ppm with an average of 1 26 ppm at the wells and plant Nitrate levels more than 10 ppm have been found to pose a health risk for infants less than six months old and could rise after rain events or agricultural activity and possible reasons for the levels found during testing include runoff from use of fertilizer leaching from septic tanks or sewage and the erosion of natural deposits Fluoride and Barium were also found at low levels in samples and likely for similar reasons barium can be caused by discharges of drilling waste or discharges from
