North Wales Water Authority Penllyn Area Water Main Replacement Project

North Wales Water Authority (NWWA) will be replacing the existing cast iron water mains in the Penllyn Area beginning on or around Wednesday, August 22, 2018 and will last approximately 90 days. The project will consist of installing the new water main, new fire hydrants, and replacing existing water service along with the associated restoration work. Residents in the project area are being notified in writing by the NWWA. Project work will be conducted during the hours of 7am-7pm Monday-Friday. Streets will be open to local traffic, emergency vehicles, mail delivery, and school buses but delays should be expected. For ongoing project updates visit the NWWA website at www.nwwater.com .


Lower Gwynedd residents with swimming pools or irrigation systems may install a by-pass meter that measures the amount of water that is used but does not discharge into sanitary sewer system. The homeowner is responsible for all expenses for the installation and plumbing permit costs. Note that it must be installed by a registered master plumber. A $25.00 fee is charged yearly to administer the program. A portion of the metered water which is eliminated from entering the sanitary sewer system can then be deducted from your sewer bill.

The meter must be installed AFTER the water company meter, not on the line in front of the meter.

*When installing a replacement or new meter, please email a picture of the face of the meter and a completed registration form to customerservice@BCWSA.net in order to document a starting read.

In the Fall of each year BCWSA will notify all residents with Bypass/Deduct Meters to take a picture of the face of the meter and email it to BCWSA. Note that all defective meters must be replaced and a picture of the meter must be received before ANY credits will be issued.

Alternatively, homeowners with in-ground swimming pools may receive an annual $25.00 credit and above-ground pools can receive an annual $10.00 credit on their sewer bill without the costs of installing a by-pass meter.
