If you have a water softener, put it on bypass. If the pressure returns, your water softener may need to be serviced. NOTE: water softeners need to be serviced every 8-10 years. If you don't have a water softener, the problem could be the pressure reducing valve.

Emergency Notification

A DEP Tier I Regulation, effective May 2010, mandates that water companies have the ability to personally notify all of their customers within 24 hours in the event of an emergency. A Tier 1 Emergency would cause adverse health effects as a result of short-term exposure.

All RTWA customers should have provided our office with emergency contact information. NOTE: If your information has changed, please notify the office at your earliest convenience.

If you have not provided this information, or if you need to make changes, please email Dianne McLane or call the office at 215-536-4733. You can also fax your information to 215-536-0205. We will need your home phone number, plus an email address and cell phone number, if available.
