    • Upgrades to Nesbitt Dam

    • Pennsylvania American Water (PAW) recently marked the completion of a $27 million rehabilitation of the Nesbitt Dam and Reservoir in Spring Brook Twp. The 18-month construction project, started in April 2011, created additional spillway capacity and related upgrades to improve the dam’s stability to comply with Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) requirements for dam safety. Nesbitt Reservoir holds approximately 1.28 billion gallons of water and is the source of drinking water for approximately 75,000 people who are served by the company’s Nesbitt Water Treatment Plant in Pittston Twp. The dam was originally constructed in 1901.
