Water Resources for Bethlehem Residents
Drinking water is essential to everyday life. Accommodating people’s need to have sufficient drinking water dates back more than 250 years to when early Moravian founders established America’s first pump-powered public water system in America.
The Bethlehem Waterworks, or Old Waterworks, created a foundation of utilizing water supplies, like springs and the Monocacy Creek, to provide drinking water to local residents to replace fouled wells.

Bethlehem’s water is considered very soft with low levels of hardness. Having low levels of hardness is a benefit to your home’s plumbing and appliance longevity, as hard water is likely to create scale buildup and corrosion- leading to long term problems and costly repairs. Bethlehem has been awarded the Area-Wide Optimization Program (AWOP) Award for 11 consecutive years for excellence in filtration performance.
