WATER SYSTEM INFORMATION:

This report shows our water quality and what it means.  If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Matthew Helwig at 717-292-3634.  We want you to be informed about your water supply.  If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled Board of Supervisors meetings.  They are normally scheduled the 2nd and 4th Monday of the month, unless the date happens to be a holiday. Call the Township Office (717-292-3634) or visit our website at http://www.dovertownship.org/ to confirm the Board of Supervisors meeting dates.

 

SOURCE(S) OF WATER:

Our water sources are 10 wells located inside the physical boundaries of Dover Township. Currently the water from our wells is disinfected as the only form of treatment. We also purchase fully treated and disinfected water from the York Water Company.

 

A Source Water Protection Plan (SWP Plan) was completed in 2010 by SSM Group, Inc. The Plan was paid for by the PA Department of Environmental Protection (Pa. DEP). The SWP Plan

found that our source(s) are potentially susceptible to RCRA facilities, golf courses, transportations corridors, commercial property, gas stations, underground fuel tanks, quarries, farming and manure application practices, and natural gas pipe lines. However due to water quality monitoring and the regulation of land use activities within our well head protection areas, the risk of contamination is low.

 

Our SWP Plan is available for public review at the Dover Township Municipal Building, 2480 West Canal Road, Dover, PA 17315. Call Dover Township at 717-292-3634 is you wish to schedule a review of our SWP Plan.

 

Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population.  Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections.  These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers.  EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbial contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).

 

Monitoring Your Water:

We routinely monitor for contaminants in your drinking water according to federal and state laws.  The following tables show the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1 to December 31, 2016.  The State allows us to monitor for some contaminants less than once per year because the concentrations of these contaminants do not change frequently.  Some of our data is from prior years in accordance with the Safe Drinking Water Act.  The date has been noted on the sampling results table.
