I can't find any information on the suburbs. Is there any risk in Bensalem? It literally borders Philadelphia, and the spill itself was in Bucks County.

The spill affects the Baxter Treatment Plant. If Bensalem gets their water there, than yes.

The water companies have thus far said Bensalem is safe.

Grocery stores are out of water regardless

I believe Bensalem gets theirs from Bristol Township which is up river from the spill, and was shut off just in case anyway. Sounds like Aqua is getting the water from further North in Bucks for right now.

According to Aqua PA there was only 1 plant effected and they shut it down immediately upon hearing of the spill. The rest of their intakes are all up river from the spill, meaning the surrounding area’s water supply is safe. Regardless, they are testing constantly.
