This committee was created as a joint venture of Bridgeton, Nockamixon and Tinicum Townships  in September, 2000. It is comprised of representatives from all three townships responsible for working with the governments of those townships to study and advise them on decisions affecting the quantity and quality of out Township’s groundwater.
The BNTGMC proposes and conducts scientific studies, regulatory reviews and educational programs. It also works to facilitate coordination of related municipal programs that ensure a safe, reliable and adequate water supply to support intended uses within the capacity of available groundwater resources.







First Energy Aerial Saw Operations in Bridgeton

This is a message from Gary Mason, Regional External Affairs Consultant for FirstEnergy:

Please be aware: Forestry will be conducting aerial saw operations in Met-Ed beginning July 25, 2022, through September 1, 2022weather permitting. Local counties included in flights:  Northampton (Williams & Glendon); Bucks (Durham, Tinicum, Riegelsville, Nockamixon, Bridgeton).

Please be advised that Aerial Solutions Inc. will be the helicopter company performing the work.

The pilot will be in communication with any local airports, when in their airspace. The helicopter will be flying above or alongside the lines and may circle around for a closer inspection. The helicopter is a MD 500 E, Yellow & White with Blue Stripe, and Tail Number N5238C.  

Suspended on an adjustable 90-foot boom beneath a helicopter and equipped with multiple 24-inch rotary blades, the aerial saw is typically deployed along transmission lines in areas that are environmentally sensitive or inaccessible to bucket trucks and other vehicles. This fast, safe and efficient method of trimming typically covers more area in a day than a ground crew might complete in a week. The saw also eliminates the risk of injury to workers using bucket trucks or climbing trees to cut limbs near high voltage equipment.

The saw cleanly cuts tree limbs 8 to 10 inches in diameter, which fall straight to the ground propelled by air blasts from the helicopter rotors. Ground crews move limbs that have fallen onto roadways, yards, agricultural fields or in streams into adjacent wooded areas. The ground crew will also flag and stop motorists along roads if the saw is working nearby.

The helicopter flies above and alongside transmission lines and may circle around to perform additional trimming. The pilot communicates with local airport personnel whenever the helicopter is operating within their air space.

As always, poor weather and emergency patrols/repairs elsewhere may cause re-scheduling and/or delays.

WELL STUDY – 06/15/2022

Researchers at Temple University are looking for families who drink water from a private well for a paid study. They are interested in keeping children safe from illnesses that can be spread by drinking water from private wells. Families will receive a free whole-home UV water treatment system (value of device + installation = $1,000). Families can participate from home. To be part of this NIH-funded study, families must have a child three years old or younger and live in Berks, Bucks, Chester, Lancaster, Lehigh, or Montgomery county.
