Potable Water Supply
Potable Water Supply
The properties located within the Fish Creek wastewater service area and the Country Crossing wastewater service area are generally serviced by public water. Warwick Township Water & Sewer Authority (WTWSA) currently purchases water from Aqua Pennsylvania and the North Wales Water Authority through multiple interconnections to service the properties within these service areas. The remaining portions of the township are supplied by individual wells.
Warwick Township Water & Sewer Authority currently operates a water distribution system consisting of a ductile iron water main ranging in size from 4 inches to 12 inches in diameter. Aqua Pennsylvania installed a 16-inch-diameter water transmission main in the southern portion of the township to provide Warwick Township Water & Sewer Authority with finished potable surface water through a bulk water supply agreement. Subsequently, the North Wales Water Authority installed a 16 inch diameter water transmission main in the northern portion of the township to provide Warwick Township Water & Sewer Authority with finished potable surface water through a bulk water supply agreement. These two independent water supplies ensure that the authority’s customers will have a safe and redundant supply of water at all times. The authority maintains various booster stations, storage tanks, interconnections and utility infrastructure throughout the township. The authority once relied on wells as its sole source of water but transitioned to surface water in 1998.
In order to ensure the quality and potability of our treated water, WTWSA monitors for all regulated constituents as required by federal and state laws, in addition to monitoring for unregulated substances, such as radon and microbial pathogens.
We want our customers to be informed about their water quality.
