Major Water Storage Tank Projects

Tanks provide increased available water to the system for fire flow and during peak demand periods, while stabilizing water pressure to our customers.  As the water system has continued to grow the Authority has planned investment into building new tanks to ensure that optimal water service is provided under all situations. 

This year work is underway on the design of an upgrade to the Hillcrest tank in Lansdale Borough and exploration of potential new tank sites in Worcester Township and West Rockhill Township. 

Main Replacement and Improvement Projects

In 2017, the Authority is continuing its aggressive Main Replacement Program.  We work closely with local municipalities to coordinate and schedule additional main replacement projects as opportunities become available.

Developer Projects

Throughout our service area there are projects involving the extension of our water system into a new development.  Typically, this work is done by the Developer’s own contractors; however, NPWA provides oversight to ensure that the work is completed according to required standards and specifications.  We always analyze each extension of our system to determine if there is the potential for any adverse impact on our existing customers.   NPWA works with developers to ensure that all extensions are done in a way to minimize any impact to our valued customers.

Currently underway is: Maple Street Townhomes, Lower Salford Township; Berkley Court, Souderton Borough; Meadow Glen, Skippack Township.  

Road Improvement Projects

The NPWA service area has been impacted by several PennDOT road improvement and bridge replacement projects. The Authority has been closely involved in coordinating construction efforts. Road improvement projects require NPWA’s involvement to ensure the water facilities are maintained and protected as the roadway is excavated and reconstructed.  In some cases, PennDOT projects require relocation of facilities that are in conflict with the construction improvements.  In other cases, NPWA considers potential extension or replacement of main prior to completion of final roadway paving. This prevents reopening a newly paved roadway as well as serves as a cost savings for water main improvement projects.

Upcoming projects include: 

Reliance Road, Franconia Township; Derstine Avenue, Lansdale Borough; Pennbrook, Lansdale Borough; E. Third Street, Lansdale Borough; Schoolhouse Road, New Britain Township; Diamond Street, Souderton Borough; Hillside Avenue, Souderton Borough.
