We are pleased to present the 2017 MPBMA Annual Drinking Water Quality Report.
The Mt. Penn Water Authority will be flushing fire hydrants starting Monday, April 9 and continue throughout the months of April and May from 7:30AM-3:00PM. The flushing operation may cause temporary clouding of water and low water pressure. The system will return to normal after flushing is completed each day. The areas affected are Mt. Penn, Stony Creek, and the Borough of St. Lawrence.
MPBMA has been awarded a Schuylkill Highlands grant of $10,000 for the assessment of Crystal Lake.

The Antietam Valley’s storm drain stenciling project is a cooperative effort of the Mt. Penn Water Authority’s Source Water Protection program and the Mt. Penn Borough and Lower Alsace Township’s (MS4) storm water pollution prevention program. Two campers, Ava Adamczyk and Lyndsey Kline, from the Antietam Valley Playground program designed the storm drain stencil shown above. The stencil will be painted on the street curbs near storm drains throughout the Antietam Valley by local volunteers, such as boy/girl scout troops. The stenciling project is aimed at preventing trash, pet waste, household chemicals and other pollutants from entering the Antietam Creek.
The staff at MPBMA work around the clock to provide top quality water to every tap. To maintain a clean dependable water supply, they need your help. Download the “Watershed Guide” brochure.
