PA DEP sets hearing for Northampton and Warwick Townships water source

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) recently scheduled a public hearing on proposed measures to benefit Bucks County’s Northampton and Warwick Townships, which are currently dealing with a contaminated water supply.

The hearing, set for November 17, will discuss the DEP’s plan to install a waterline to address the contamination. It presents an opportunity for local citizens to give testimony and submit written comments. Those who cannot attend can also send their comments to the DEP via mail or email by December 28.

 Interested parties can view all pertinent documents on the action in the Administrative Record, which is available at the DEP’s Southeast Regional Office in Norristown and at the Northampton and Warwick Township Buildings.

“The health and safety of our residents is a top priority for our Department,” Southeast Regional Director Cosmo Servidio said. “In this case, providing a public waterline is the most effective measure to ensure the wellbeing of those impacted. It’s very important for residents to monitor their private wells every three to five years to make sure these contaminants are not hiding in our drinking water.”

The hearing will take place at the Warwick Township Building at 6:30 p.m.
