Beginning Wednesday, March 24th at 8:00 a.m., we will be having routine maintenance done on its Buckingham Blvd water tank until April 7th. During this time the water tank will be off line. This may cause lower than normal water pressure throughout the system; those customers closest to the tank will be impacted the most. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause but this work is necessary to stay compliant and ensure the quality of water within the system.
We anticipate the following streets in the service area to be the most impacted:
If you have any questions, please call the office at 367-7448 between the hours of 7:30am and 4:00pm Monday through Friday.
EAWA serves over 6,300 cusotmers in Elizabethtown Borough, Mount Joy Township and West Donegal Township and produces approximately 1.3 million gallons a day (GPD) average of water.
EAWA’s water comes from multiple sources. Surface water comprises 25% of the total water produced. Surface water comes from the tributary named Back Run, which is augmented with flow during dry weather from the Conewago Creek, which is in turn augmented with flow from the Cornwall Quarry. This water is processed by the Authority’s filter plant, which is located at 211 West Hummelstown St. The remaining 75% of water is produced by seven (7) deep wells. Water is treated at the well sites and is pumped into the distribution system.
