East Dunkard Water Authority- Dilliner, PA 15327

Water Main Break Repaired

The water main break in the Davistown area has been repaired and water service is expected to return to normal levels.  However, customers may continue to experience low pressure for a period of time. In the event you require water, buffaloes remain in place at the East Dunkard Water Authority and the Bobtown Fire Hall. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this event.


Water Main Break

Due to recent weather conditions, there is a water main break reported in the Davistown area. Customers may experience low pressure, discolored water, or could have no water service for a period. Crews are working diligently to find the exact location of the break and begin repairs. This notification will be updated when the break has been repaired. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to resolve the issue.

The 2023 Consumer Confidence Report is Available

Each year, water utilities are required to generate a Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) to provide customers with important information about the quality of your drinking water.


Although Pennsylvania America Water only became the court-ordered receiver of the East Dunkard Water Authority (EDWA) last month, we are obligated to share EDWA’s water quality performance results for 2023.


The CCR can be found online, or customers can view a hard copy at the EDWA offices Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.am – 4:00 p.m. (2790 South Eighty Eight Road Dilliner, PA 15327).


ATTENTION LANDLORDS, BUSINESSES, SCHOOLS AND OTHER GROUPS Please share this information with tenants, students and other water users at your location who are not billed customers of EDWA.

System Maintenance Announced for March 26

Starting Tuesday, March 26, East Dunkard Water Authority Crews will conduct system maintenance at 9 a.m., which may cause low-pressure or discolored water for customers living in portions of Dunkard, Greene, and Whitely Townships. The work is expected to last approximately eight hours. Customers with water quality issues are encouraged to contact East Dunkard Water Authority at 724-943-3713.


As we continue to improve EDWA’s system, we appreciate your patience.

EDWA Discolored Water Event Update

Crews worked overnight and continued investigating the cause of discolored water in the Dunkard Township area. They are still flushing portions of the water distribution system, which is expected to last approximately a week. During this time, customers may still experience low water pressure and/or discolored water.


Unlike last October's boil water event, the filtration and disinfection process at the East Dunkard Water Authority (EDWA) treatment plant was not interrupted during this recent discoloration event. The plant has and continues to operate without interruption.


The EDWA system has been experiencing issues for some time now; these problems are not new. Pennsylvania American Water is developing a more comprehensive system flushing plan to help remove the legacy issue of years of sediment accumulated in the system's water mains, contributing to water discoloration. Overcoming challenges like this recent discoloration event will require intensive maintenance, repairs, and upgrades to the EDWA water system by Pennsylvania American Water.


There are no water advisories in place. Water buffaloes are available at the East Dunkard Water Authority offices at 2790 South Eighty-Eight Road in Dilliner and the Bobtown Fire Department at 130 Larimar Avenue in Bobtown. Customers should bring containers to fill. Pennsylvania American Water will continue to provide regular updates to EDWA customers regarding planned maintenance and improvements throughout its receivership. Advance notice will be given if any planned water service disruptions may occur to complete these upgrades.


In emergencies, we will work quickly to notify customers of the situation and our actions to correct it through the system’s phone/email/text mass notification system and on the EDWA Facebook page. We apologize for any inconvenience while we improve the EDWA system.

Crews are investigating the cause of the discolored water for customers living in the Dunkard Township area and will be flushing the water distribution system in your vicinity. You may notice reduced water pressure or discolored water while we perform this work
