Mount Joy Borough and Mount Joy Borough Authority New Booster Pump Station Ribbon Cutting Ceremony set for August 20, 2015

The Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for the new water booster station in Mount Joy Borough will take place on Thursday, August 20, 2015 at 10:00 a.m. The ceremony will last approximately 30 minutes and will be followed by light refreshments and the opportunity to tour the new booster pump station.

In 2013 the Authority recognized the need to increase capacity at the booster station to improve water pressure and enhance service reliability for its customer base in the western part of the Borough. By providing these improvements, the Authority would be ideally positioned to meet the growing capacity needs of its residential and commercial customers. After investigating multiple options, the Authority decided to upgrade the pump station for both financial and aesthetic reasons. To assist with this upgrade, the Authority applied for and was awarded a grant for up to $700,000.00 from PA DCED for the project.

Construction of the new pump station began in September 2014 and was completed in June 2015. The increased capacity of new booster station provides a consistent water supply for residential and commercial customers and significantly enhances fire protection in the event of an emergency. The installation of larger diameter water mains and fire hydrants also contributes to improved fire protection. The Authority also upgraded approximately 1100 feet of four-inch diameter water main on Square Street, which allowed the Authority to terminate a water main utility easement with Cargill Corporation. Termination of the easement affords Cargill the ability to operate without restrictions and maximize its footprint for future improvements. The elimination of the water main also provides a layer of protection for Cargill because daily production and man-hours will not be interrupted by a break within an aging water main.

When viewed in its entirety, the project creates opportunities for new residential and commercial development, which is valuable to the growth and viability of Mount Joy Borough and Mount Joy Borough Authority.
