Water Supply Emergency Declaration–August 13, 2021

Dear Bern Township Residents:

Please be advised that the Western Berks Water Authority is experiencing technical difficulties and their water plant is shut down until such time that they can make repairs. The repairs may not be completed until next week.

For those of you that are served by public water and live near the county facilities or the township building area, you will continue to receive water as the Reading Water Authority is now feeding the Western Berks / BTMA water lines.

The water authority asks at this time that you conserve as much water as possible if you are on any public water system.

Thanks for your cooperation in this matter. Take care and stay safe.
