Following the notice, long lines formed at ShopRite, Target and other area stores, with ShopRite limiting customers to three bottles each.

“As has been reported, on Friday night a chemical spill occurred in Bristol Township, Bucks County which released contaminants into the Delaware River,” said Mike Carroll, the city’s deputy managing director for transportation, infrastructure and sustainability. “The Philadelphia Water Department (PWD) became aware of this through the Delaware Valley Early Warning System (EWS) and has been evaluating the situation since that time to understand potential impacts to the public. Although early indications have not revealed contamination, we are still monitoring the situation and conducting testing.”

According to the Philadelphia Water Department’s website, it provides water to over “2 million people in Philadelphia, Montgomery, Delaware, and Bucks counties.”
