The Phoenixville Water Department (public water supply ID-1150077) recently released their 2013 Consumer Confidence Report, which contains important information about our drinking water.
The report summarizes the quality of water provided in 2013 - including details about water source, what the water at your tap contains, and how it compares to standards set by regulatory agencies. Although the report lists only those regulated substances that were detected in our water, they test for more than what is reported.
The complete report can be found HERE.
If you have any questions about the information in this report, please call E. Jean Krack, Borough Manager, at 610-933-8801.

Professor Ahab, aka Will (of The WhyKayKays and Little Baby Man) returns to TASTE (236 Bridge Street) with a caravan of raucous tunes and mayhem on his mind. “Originals & covers” doesn’t begin to describe it...
Tonight, the Pickering Creek Inn will host a Summit Tap Take Over from 6 to 8 PM.
There will be four different beers on draft, including the Rebellion Stout from Summit's limited-release Union Series. It's a single-hopped with a new UK dwarf hop named after a Celtic queen who led the fight against the Romans. It's brewed with the quintessential Stout malt from fiercely independent County Cork (Ireland) and loosely based on a recipe from 1896 taken from the archives of an old Cork brewery.
The other beers on draft include:
Frost Line Rye IPA
There will be plenty of Summit giveaways!
Mike McCarthy is a Phoenixville-based pianist/composer who has developed a particular fondness for the Beatles. Playing cocktail sets around town over the years, Mike always tried to avoid anything "cheesy" or overplayed, which led him to explore the Beatles' deeper cuts - a massive catalouge of over 200 works mainly from the infamous writing duo Lennon & McCartney.
McCarthy's latest effort, "Gently Sleeps: A Calming Tribute to The Beatles," takes 13 sometimes forgotten Beatles gems and slows them way down into some minimalistic & rather relaxing renditions. There's "an obvious love for the music that comes shining through" says reviewer Wildy Haskell.
Ever since requesting his first piano lesson at the age of 6, Mike has been writing his own original works and his passion for composing grew exponetially over the years. This led to his debut of original compositions, "This Piano" - a record that portrays a versatile player, bridging the gaps between solid technical skills and distinctive compositional instincts.
The songs of This Piano are considered by Mike to be his musical autobiography. Rather than offering a description of the of the album, Mike simply states, “instrumental music expresses something that words cannot” and he hopes that the notes in This Piano will mostly speak for themselves while connecting with listeners around the globe.
The album was released in the fall of 2012 delighting reviewers and continuing to receive worldwide airplay. "Recommended if you are looking for something a little different," says Kathy Parsons from MainlyPiano.com
When not performing, composing or recording, Mike enjoys a full roster of piano students and also runs Hear & There Music, a travelling music school and record label for Mike’s releases.
