The Bridgeton/Nockamixon/Tinicum Joint Groundwater Committee produced a new groundwater ordinance to be considered by Nockamixon Township.
The Bridgeton/Nockamixon/Tinicum Joint Groundwater Committee was created through Ordinance 100 and is designed to establish thresholds that must be met to trigger various kinds of required testing when new wells are dug. Membership to the committee is open to municipalities within Upper Bucks County served by on-lot sewage systems and on-lot water supply. The objective is to protect neighbors’ water availability and use, while not making it unduly burdensome for a landowner or developer to put in a new well.
Nockamixon Township supervisors will consider the ordinance for approval at the meeting on Thursday, June 21.
