The Benner Township Water Authority completed some upgrades to the well house located at 430 Millgate Road. Perhaps you have seen our crew working at the building which included the addition of a generator room and a 25-kilowatt generator that we received from the Centre County Government at no charge.
This will allow the system to continue to operate uninterrupted during power outages. Our tank already maintains more than a one-day supply of water; however, during a power outage there was no way to maintain the tank level in case of emergency where a significant water supply is needed immediately.
We have also replaced the red light on the outside of the building which is wired to turn on in case of a failure within the pump house. If anyone happens to see a red light illuminated on the well house please contact our office immediately at 814-355-4778 during normal business hours. After hours, weekends, and holidays we can be reached 24 hours a day by calling the Centre County Emergency Communication Center at their non-emergency number (1-800-479-0050) and they will contact us.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
