The Cambria Township Water Authority was formed in 1977 under the Municipal Authorities Act of 1945. The purpose of the authority is to provide quality drinking water for the local area residents. Initially, the authority serviced only Colver and Twenty Row but the service area was later expanded to include the Colver Co-generation plant and Tripoli.
When the authority was formed it included the Vetera Dam reservoir, the distribution system and a well, which were originally constructed in 1913. Vetera Dam provides the majority of water whereas the well provides additional water at various times of the year. A pump house was built in 1940.
The goal of the authority is to attempt to complete one project each year using our own funds, or if they are available, grants. We approach our projects in this manner so that we do not have to take out loans that would ultimately force us to increase water rates.
The authority meets the second Tuesday of each month at 7:30 P.M. in the Cambria Township Municipal Building. The public is invited to attend.
