Overnight when crews were able to shut down the water service to the area of the main break, a small number of customers experienced a loss of positive pressure causing BCWSA to issue a boil water advisory for customers in the following areas:


  • East Lincoln Highway between I-95 and Oxford Valley Road
  • Route 213/Maple Avenue between Flowers Mill Road and East Lincoln Highway
  • Woodbourne Road between East Lincoln Highway and Third Street


It is important to note that during the day while personnel worked to shut down the water to the area there was no loss of positive pressure and a boil water advisory was not necessary.  Customers outside these areas may notice discolored water, however that is not an indication that they need to boil their water.  To read the full public notice, click here.

Please be advised that our Operations Department is working to repair a water main break at Old Lincoln Highway & Woodbourne Road.  Part of the water main break has been contained, but heavy equipment needs to be placed at a valve to completely stop the flow of water.  The break has been identified in front of the TD Bank on Woodbourne Road.


BCWSA is now concerned with fulfilling Middletown Township & Langhorne customers with enough water to meet the increased demand in this summer heat.  It is advised that most customers voluntarily restrict water usage for the remainder of the day, into this evening.


Now that the water main break has been isolated, BCWSA estimates repair later this evening.  Regardless, water pressure and volume will remain an issue into tomorrow afternoon.


More updates will be posted as they are received from BCWSA Operations.
