 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Lansdale, Pa- March 28, 2018– During the week of April 8, 2018, the North Penn Water Authority (NPWA) will commence its annual fire hydrant inspection and flushing program that runs through May 27, 2018. Annual inspection and flushing of fire hydrants increase public safety by ensuring that hydrants will function when called upon in the case of a fire. Flushing of hydrants also improves water quality by removing the build-up of materials from the inside of water distribution pipes.

“The Authority is dedicated to providing all of our customers with quality drinking water and reliable fire protection which is why NPWA inspects and flushes all of the fire hydrants in our distribution system every year,” said Anthony J. Bellitto, Jr., Executive Director of North Penn Water Authority.

Flushing will take place at night between the hours of 8:00 p.m. and 4:00 a.m. and during the day between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. The following is a tentative flushing schedule:

  • April 8th through April 24th: Lansdale, Hatfield and New Britain Boroughs, Hatfield, Upper Gwynedd and New Britain Townships
  • April 24th through May 20th: Skippack, Worcester, Lower Salford, Franconia, Salford and Towamencin Townships 
  • May 13th through May 27th: Sellersville Borough 
  • May 20th through May 27th: Souderton Borough and Hilltown Township

If water discoloration occurs, customers should run the cold water for a few minutes. If the water does not clear up, customers should turn the tap off for 10 to 20 minutes and then run the water again for a few minutes.  Customers who experience persistent discolored water or reductions in water pressure should call the Authority’s Customer Service Department at 215-855-3617 between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.       Contact:  Maryann Regan 215-855-3617 mregan@npwa.org
