North Penn Water Authority 50th Anniversary Open House

In honor of 50 years of serving their customers, North Penn Water Authority (NPWA) is inviting the community to an Open House event to celebrate this momentous occasion on Thursday, September 10 from 3 pm to 7 pm at their Operations Center located at 300 Forty Foot Road in Towamencin.

 The public is invited to tour NPWA’s Operations Center, view highlights of the past 50 years and see demonstrations related to the NPWA water system, like valve turning, leak detection, how a fire hydrant works and how customer meters are read. This family-friendly event will include light refreshments, hot dogs, soft pretzels, popcorn, finger sandwiches, and an ice cream truck with various ice cream and water ice treats, to enjoy and a celebration cake will be cut to mark this momentous occasion. 

 Every attendee will also receive a free Refill from the Tap water bottle, a stainless steel, double-walled insulated water bottle that will keep water cold for hours. Refill from the Tap is a new campaign aimed at reducing plastic waste from going into landfills while saving customers money.

At 5:30 pm, a number of local, state and federal elected officials will honor the Authority with certificates to mark the anniversary and Anthony J. Bellitto, Jr. PE, executive director of NPWA, will honor Marvin A. Anders, a long-serving NPWA board member for 40 years, with a lobby dedication and ribbon cutting.
