Grove Park Residents – Leak Detected – 05/15/2020

The Benner Township Water Authority has located a small leak on Aster Avenue. The maintenance crew will be making a temporary repair to the line and residents along Aster Avenue will experience a slight decrease in water pressure.

A permanent repair will need to be made at a later date which will result in water being shut off. Our Authority office will give plenty of notice before this takes place.

Thank you for your patience.

Grove Park Generator

Grove Park Generator – Update

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.

Grove Park 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.
