LOWER POTTSGROVE PA – Final agreements between the Pottstown Borough Authority, which operates the water supply system on which Lower Pottsgrove residents and businesses depend, and the developer of the Spring Valley Farms housing community on Bleim Road were approved Tuesday (Sept. 19, 2017) during the authority’s regular meeting, according to an article published by The Mercury newspaper.
Mercury reporter Evan Brandt wrote that Spring Valley Farms will pay the authority $52,500 to connect a pipeline from a North Pleasant View Road water tower to the subdivision, the entrance for which is at 1934 Bleim Rd.
The tower was erected by the developer during 2006, township Manager Ed Wagner said Thursday (Sept. 21), and has remain unused until a need arose. That’s now, he added, as construction of the more than a decade-old development plan has now begun.
Brandt’s story also noted that, separately and unrelated to Spring Valley Farms, developers of the township-approved Sanatoga Green mixed-use community on Evergreen Road asked the authority to dramatically increase proposed water volume for their coming project. That won’t be possible without a pump or tank installed at the developers’ cost, Brandt reported authority officials said.
Consequently, Sanatoga Green may look to buys its water from Pennsylvania American Water Company, the article added.
