Horsham’s existing water system obtains water via a subsurface supply withdrawn from 15 strategically located wells throughout the Township. Treatment is limited to chlorine disinfections at all supplies, with supplemental aeration at five supplies, prior to entry into the Authority’s some 103 miles of its distribution system. Five elevated water storage tanks provide the Township with pressure equalization, fire reserve, and emergency standby storage. The five tanks have a capacity of 4,250,000 gallons. The Authority has a water customer base of 7042-metered connections, of which approximately 6,500 are residential units. During the year 2002, the system delivered over 900 million gallons of water to its customers.
