NOTICE TO OUR CUSTOMERS
As you have likely noticed, work is being performed on the Dublin Water Storage Tank in preparation for the proposed repainting of the tank interior/exterior. The repainting of the water storage tank will aid in maintaining drinking water quality; improve the appearance of the tank; and increase the longevity of this critical asset of the Borough’s public water system. During the next phase of the work, the tank will be drained to allow abrasive blasting and recoating of the elevated water tank interior and exterior.
While the tank is out of service, Dublin Borough’s water supply will be supplemented by an interconnection with the Bedminster Municipal Authority Water System. The Borough’s three groundwater wells will also continue to operate. While the water tank is out of service, you may notice some minor variations in your water pressure. The Borough asks for your cooperation and understanding during this project.
If you should have any questions related to this project, please contact Borough Hall at 215-249-3310.

Governor Wolf Requests Disaster Declaration for Small Businesses and Non-Profits to Obtain Loans.
Governor Tom Wolf requested that the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) implement an SBA disaster declaration to provide assistance in the form of SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loans for businesses and eligible non-profits in all 67 counties in PA.
SBA's Economic Injury Disaster Loans offer up to $2 million in assistance and can provide vital economic support to small businesses to help overcome the temporary loss of revenue they are experiencing. These loans may be used to pay fixed debts, payroll, accounts payable and other bills that can't be paid because of the disaster's impact.
The interest rate is 3.75% for small businesses without credit available elsewhere; businesses with credit available elsewhere are not eligible. The interest rate for non-profit is 2.75%.
SBA offers loans with long-term repayments in order to keep payments affordable, up to a maximum of 30 years. Terms are determined on a case-by-case basis, based upon each borrower's ability to repay.
The application process will be online. Details on how to apply, as well as deadlines, will be established once the governor's request is granted.
In addition to making sure this federal funding for small business assistance is available, the Wolf Administration is working with the General Assembly to make sure state funding is available for small business assistance too. Small business can apply through the Small Business First Fund (SBD), an existing PIDA loan program.
