Source of Water

 

Dover Township’s water source is primarily groundwater from 9 different well facilites. Dover Township also purchases about 20% from a neighboring water company. The water is treated with sodium hypochlorite at a solution strength of 1.25%. We are requried through DEP and EPA to do stringent testing on our water. Dover Township as of April 1st  of 2016 has revised our Total Coliform testing plan and will be adding additional testing sites as well as weekly sample collection verses monthly sample collection.
