Blue Ball Water Authority

The Blue Ball Water Authority (BBWA) system consists of three (3) wells which supply water to approximately 500 customers.  The current quality of the BBWA wells requires only disinfection prior to distribution.  A 300,000 gallon elevated storage tank provides storage for approximately 1.5 days of normal system demand and an additional reserve of 150,000 gallons for future needs or use in fighting fires as well as helping the system maintain consistent pressure to its customers.  Presently, the average daily water use is 90,400 gallons per day, based on the daily use reports for 2014. The Authority consists of five (5) appointed members who meet at 6:30 p.m. on the second Monday of every month.


East Earl Sewer Authority

The East Earl Sewer Authority (EESA) completed construction of a low-pressure sewer system serving a core area of East Earl Township centered along PA Routes 23 and 322 in 1988. This system was the only public sewer in the core area of the Township until an expansion project was completed in 1999. All of the flows from the initial project were discharged to the Borough of New Holland (Borough) through the end of 1999. Each EESA customer discharging sewage to the Borough is served by individual grinder pump(s), which eject the sewage to the common low-pressure sewers in the streets. All of the initial project sewage is conveyed to an Equalization/Maintenance Facility in Blue Ball, from which all sewage is pumped to a single connection point to the Borough gravity sewer system. The expansion project was completed to collect and convey sewage flows to the Earl Township Sewer Authority (ETSA). The flows to the ETSA are conveyed by a combination of gravity and low-pressure sewers and through seven (7) pump stations (six (6) operated by the EESA and one (1) privately operated). The Authority consists of five appointed members who meet on the second Monday of every month immediately following the Blue Ball Water Authority meeting.
