For those who had any questions on the impact to our water from the recent river spill, please see NPWA's assurance that our water is safe. Thanks, NPWA for the update!
North Penn Water Authority’s Water Supply is unaffected by the river spill in Lower Bucks County. “There is no impact from this event on customers of the North Penn Water Authority. Our water is continuously monitored and tested around the clock every day. Our customers can be assured that their water is completely safe,” said Anthony Bellitto, executive director of NPWA.
The chemical spill on the Delaware River in Bristol, PA, in Lower Bucks County, which the Philadelphia Water Department has been responding to over the weekend, occurred at a location approximately 38 miles south of and downstream of NPWA’s river intake at the Point Pleasant Pumping Station. It is not possible for the spilled material to travel in the opposite direction of the river’s flow to reach the Authority’s facility, located upstream and such a long distance away.
