Elverson is entirely dependent upon local groundwater sources for water supply. The privately-held Elverson Water Company was established in 1989 with the advent of the Summerfield development, beginning operations in 1990.
The water company makes use of high-capacity community wells and storage capacity of 550,000 gallons to serve a system of water mains extending through most of the Borough. The groundwater is treated through the introduction of sodium hypochlorite and distributed by a pressurized system, delivering a typical water pressure of 40-100 psi at its connections. Except for public fire hydrants, all connections are metered; they are recorded and billed quarterly.
