  • North Penn Water Authority - Committed to Providing Safe, Reliable, and Economical Water - Notice for Customers in Sellersville Borough and West Rockhill Township Only
    hours on Sun June 29 2014 on a large size pipe located at the stream crossing behind the firehouse NPWA activated its telephone emergency notification system and called all customers in the Sellersville system at 8 40 am on Sunday morning to tell them about the situation The main break has caused very low levels in our water storage tank resulting in a significant loss of water pressure in the entire Sellersville distribution system Our crews are on site repairing the break to bring the system back to full pressure which we anticipate will occur later Sunday afternoon Until the situation can be remedied we are asking all customers living in Sellersville and West Rockhill to conserve water by limiting your usage to only the most essential purposes Please do not use water for irrigating lawns and gardens or for any other non essential outdoor usage You can continue to use water for flushing toilets and taking showers As an additional precaution all Sellersville customers should boil their water first before using it for drinking cooking or food preparation A loss of positive water pressure is a signal of the existence of conditions that could allow contamination to enter the distribution system through backflow by back pressure or back siphonage As a result there is an increased chance that the water might contain disease causing organisms DO NOT DRINK THE WATER WITHOUT BOILING IT FIRST Bring all water to a rolling boil let it boil for one minute and cool before using or use bottled water You should use boiled or bottled water for drinking making ice washing dishes brushing teeth and food preparation until further notice Inadequately treated water may contain disease causing organisms These organisms include bacteria viruses and parasites which can cause symptoms such as nausea cramps

  • North Penn Water Authority - Committed to Providing Safe, Reliable, and Economical Water - NPWA’s 3-Million Gallon Water Storage Tank Bowl Raising
    height with a 118 foot diameter steel bowl for water storage resting on top of a 60 foot diameter 84 foot tall concrete pedestal It is this bowl that has been assembled on the ground and will be raised this week When completed this 3 million gallon tank of composite construction will be the largest of its kind in the mid Atlantic region It has been almost 20 years since the last time the Authority built additional tank storage Construction of a 2 5 million gallon water storage tank the largest in the Authority s system until now was completed in the fall of 1995 in Lederach Since that time water demands have increased substantially along with the number of customers to an average daily water demand of about 10 million gallons per day with a peak daily water demand of about 15 million gallons per day As the number of customers and their associated water demands has grown steadily over these years the amount of water storage held in the NPWA s tanks has remained constant Standard practice in the water industry is to have enough storage capacity to meet one average day s water demand The existing NPWA tank volumes do not meet this criteria so additional storage is required Water held in storage allows the Authority to maintain the required operational volumes and pressures to meet the daily water demands of customers and the peak demands during the summer as well as reserve excess capacity when needed for firefighting and emergencies With completion of the Franconia tank at the end of the year the Authority is on schedule to commence maintenance work in the spring of 2015 on the existing elevated 2 million gallon water storage tank in the middle of Lansdale Borough located near the Madison Avenue parking lot The Lansdale tank is a critical central component of the Authority s water distribution system and it cannot be taken out of service for the extended time necessary for rehabilitation sandblasting and painting of the tank until additional storage capacity is first made available with the new tank in Franconia In the spring of 2015 both the inside and outside will be rehabilitated and painted Unlike paint that was used decades ago today s advanced type of metal coatings will better protect the structure from discoloration and surface rust ensuring that the tank will be kept in good appearance and operating condition for many years to come In the next few years after the Lansdale tank painting is completed similar maintenance work will commence on the Authority s elevated tank in Hatfield Borough In addition construction of a new 2 5 million gallon water storage tank on the property of the Graterford Prison in Skippack Township has commenced and is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2015 Following completion the Authority will be the sole water supplier to the new prison called SCI Phoenix that is being built on the same property owned by the
