New Holland Borough
Lancaster County, PA
Water Chairman–Mike Martin
The New Holland Borough water operations consist of numerous facilities and a variety of supply sources. The system includes four well sources which serve customers, which provide alternative use capability to the system so as not to over-use any particular well. There are two elevated water storage tanks as part of the system. These help provide some storage, but also importantly provide better fire supply demand as well as helping the system maintain consistent pressure to its customers. Water department operations are overseen by Supervisor Jesse Kern. The phone number for the department is 717-354-4567.
An overall 15 percent increase for Boro water customers is to be phased in over the next three years, beginning with this year’s December usage period (April 1, 2023 billing). A five percent increase is to take place in the same cycle in 2024 and 2025. The current rate of $4.07 per 1,000 gallons (.0047¢ per gallon) of water used will rise to $4.73 per 1,000 gallons used in 2025. The Boro has not had a rate increase since 2018 and has remained among the lowest cost in the region even after the three year increase.
