Benner Township Water Authority is proud to announce that the Grove Park Generator is now operational. The inspection and initial startup was completed the week of July 16, 2018. Grove Park will now continue to have water pressure and water for the emergency responders during an electrical outage. We appreciate all your input and support during this project.
Grove Park Generator – Update
Grove Park Generator
The Grove Park Generator has been installed at the well house. The maintenance crew has done a wonderful job in getting the well house prepared for the new generator. As you can see below, it has been installed and is ready for inspection.
The job is not completely finished yet. BTWA is still working on obtaining and installing the propane tanks. We are hoping to have them installed within the next week or two. We will keep you all updated on the progress of the generator.

The Benner Township Water Authority was successful in obtaining a grant as part of the PA Small Water and Sewer Program administered through the PA Department of Community & Economic Development (DCED). The grant was obtained for purchasing a generator to supply emergency power to the Grove Park development. The generator will be used to maintain power for system operation, water pressure, and energize the fire pump in case of emergencies during power outages. The generator has been received and the Spring-Benner-Walker Joint Authority (SBWJA) has begun planning for installation within the next month or two. More information to follow.
