Aqua will begin installing a new water line on Warminster Road in Hatboro and Upper Moreland Township on Monday.
Travel times and frustration levels could increase beginning Monday when Aqua begins installing a new water line. Crews will be digging along Warminster and York roads in Hatboro, as well as in Upper Moreland Township, according to Hatboro Borough Manager Fred Zollers. During construction the road will be closed to general traffic, but will be open to local traffic, he said. "People should avoid that stretch of road anyway during construction," Zollers said. Traffic will be rerouted to Byberry and York roads, he said. Once the new line is installed, Aqua will repave Warminster Road, Zollers said.

Justin Stone and Derrick Lilley share their memories of serving in Iraq and Afghanistan
It was a beautiful day in early autumn when Justin Stone was driving an armored transport truck to deliver millions of dollars to the Federal Reserve Bank in New York City. His buddy sat in the passenger seat as they drove on the Jersey Turnpike toward the financial capital of the world in Lower Manhattan. As they listened to the Howard Stern Show, they could scarcely believe what they were hearing. The World Trade Tower had been hit by a plane and was in the process of collapsing. Then, to their utter amazement and horror, the second tower was hit by another plane. It was Tuesday morning, September 11, 2001, a day that would live in infamy, as did December 7, 1941, when Pearl Harbor was attacked. Thick clouds of smoke poured into the sky…

Commissioners said they will apply for a state grant and will be required to match funds if approved for new spray poles at Masons Mill Park.
The Upper Moreland commissioners authorized the township to apply for a state grant of up to $25,000 to repair and install new water spray poles at Masons Mill Park. Wednesday is the deadline to apply for the grant and commissioners indicated at their April board meeting that they will move forward in applying. Parks and Rec Director Pat Stasio said he received a verbal commitment that the project would cost between $45,000 to $50,000 to add two more poles, replace the current one and cover plumbing costs.
