North Penn Water Authority’s Water Supply Unaffected by River Spill in Lower Bucks County

Statement from North Penn Water Authority on the Lower Bucks County chemical spill:

Lansdale, Pa.—March 27, 2023: In light of Philadelphia’s recent bottled water advisory, North Penn Water Authority would like to affirm that its water supply is unaffected and safe to drink.

“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 NPWA’s facility, located upstream and such a long distance away.
