Pennsylvania American Water today issued a mandatory conservation notice for all of its Norristown area customers to reduce water consumption due to treatment issues that have limited the production capacity of its Norristown Water Treatment Plant.
Recent heavy rains created high turbidity (cloudiness) in the raw water supply and affected the plant's capacity to meet typical customer demand. There is currently no estimate when the treatment issues will be resolved and the plant returns to normal capacity.
Customers are asked to limit their water use to essential purposes only until plant operators can resolve the issue. There are no health-related concerns with the water, however customers might experience low water pressure and/or discolored water. This notice affects approximately 31,000 Pennsylvania American Water customers in the following communities:
Customers will be notified when the mandatory conservation notice is lifted, and updates will be provided through the Pennsylvania American Water website at www.pennsylvaniaamwater.com
