DROUGHT WATCH...
On behalf of Governor Tom Wolf, PA Department of Environmental Acting Secretary Patrick McDonnell announced a drought declaration for Snyder County and 34 other counties on August 2, 2016. According to the Commonweath Drought Coordinator, the declarations are in response to low stream flows, declining groundwater levels and below-normal precipitation primarily across counties in the upper half and south-central portions of Pennsylvania.

Currently, Snyder County is in a Drought Watch. In a drought watch, DEP requests that everyone seeks to reduce their water usage by about 5 percent through voluntary conservation measures. If the watch is upgraded to a drought warning, DEP will ask that everyone reduces their water usage by 10-15 percent, also through voluntary measures. Should it become necessary, the PA Emergency Management Council can proclaim a drought emergency, which could result in mandatory bans on nonessential water use and possibly water rationing. Careful use of our resources now can help prevent, or at least delay, the need for emergency measures later.


ATTENTION ALL PTMA SEWER CUSTOMERS...
Due to Recent sewer system blockages, we remind our customers that the disposal of Clorox wipes, baby wipes, cooking greases, oils, or fats into the PTMA sewer system is prohibited. Do NOT dispose of these items via your drains, toilets or garbage disposals! An empty coffee can kept in your refrigerator will solidify the oils for easy disposal with your household trash. All other items should also be disposed of with the normal household, facility or business trash, NOT dumped into the PTMA sewer system. We ask that you make a vigilant effort to dispose of cooking greases, oils, fats and other non-flushable products in the proper manner.

PTMA Meeting Agenda...
The Penn Township Municipal Authority will hold it's next monthly meeting on Thursday, September 1, 2016 at the PTMA office at 7:00 p.m. An agenda has been posted.

ATTENTION PTMA WATER CUSTOMERS...
It has become increasingly difficult for the PTMA Water Operators to read some of our customer's water meters due to overgrown shrubs and bushes located in front of the meter touch read pads. A water meter touch read pad is a black oval plastic pad attached to the exterior of the home, which allows PTMA operators to read the water meter without entering the home. PTMA operators must be able to easily access all meter touch read pads. Please be sure that the meter touch read pad, located on the exterior of your home, is easily accessible and clear of bushes or shrubs.

Water Quality Report...
We are pleased to present to you this year's Annual Drinking Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality of water and services that we deliver to you each day. We are happy to report that our drinking water meets all federal and state requirements set forth by the Safe Water Drinking Act. A copy of the 2015 Penn Township Municipal Authority Water Quality Report has been included with the 2nd Quarter 2016 water and sewer bills.
