Residents in Sellersville and some in West Rockhill Township will have to continue boiling their water until Tuesday, according to North Penn Water Authority Executive Director, Tony Bellitto.
The source of the problem stems from a water main break on a large pipe in back of the Sellersville Firehouse, just above a stream.
“It’s confined to customers in Sellersville Borough and West Rockhill Towenship. There are no other municipalities impacted. We had a large size water main break in Sellersville Borough in the early morning hours of Sunday. We dispatched crews out there and they spent all day doing the repairs. The repairs have been completed.”
19-hundred customers were called through North Penn Water Authority’s Notification System. The North Penn Water Authority will conduct testing of water in accordance with Pennsylvania Dept. of Environmental Protection standards to be certain the water is safe to use without boiling, but again, the results will not be available until Tuesday. The water main break was repaired just before 10PM Sunday. The majority of homes affected by the boil water advisory are in Sellersville, about 100 customers in West Rockhill Township are advised to boil their water.
