Where that water from the Chester Water Authority comes from

Heron's Nest - Fri, 2017-05-19 06:21
I think they say what "goes around, comes around."

I think that also applies to your roots. You can't escape them.

I happen to have grown up in a small town out in the furthermost edges of southern Chester County.

It's called Oxford. It's a stone's throw from Maryland. And Lancaster County.

But sitting right there between Chester and Lancaster counties is a link to Delaware County that brought a smile - and some old memories - flooding back to me this week.

You may have noticed that we have been covering a fairly big development on the Delaware County business scene.

Aqua America was making a $250 million bid to buy one of the icons of Delco industry, the Chester Water Authority.

The Chester Water Authority provides water to more than 42,000 customers in 17 of Delaware County's 49 municipalities, including Chester, Aston, Glen Mills and more than 30 other towns.

But here's the thing that I always delighted in telling people whenever I learned that they got their water from the Chester Water Authority. I always ask them if they know, when they turn on their spigot, where that beautiful, sparkling water comes from. It does not come from Chester.

It does come from Chester County.

Actually, much of it comes from the Octoraro Reservoir, which is right outside of good, old Oxford, Pa.

It runs in a pipeline that pretty much snakes along the path of Route 1 all the way into Delaware County.

I then proceed to "confess" to people all the things I have done in that water. Yes, I have been chased out of the reservoir more times than I care to remember.

I have gone swimming in that water; I have fished in that water. And, in truth, I've done a few other things in that water that don't need to be mentioned in this blog.

Route 472 was the two-lane strip that went across the reservoir and connected Chester and Lancaster counties. It was a flat stretch that turned out to be a nearly perfect drag strip for teen racers.

Yes, we did that, too.

Today we are reporting that Chester Water Authority rejected that $250 million bid from Aqua America. I am glad. I don't have anything against Aqua, I just like the idea of telling people where the water that feeds the Chester Water Authority comes from.

Like I said, goes around, comes around ...

The ability - or inability - to be presidential

Heron's Nest - Fri, 2017-05-19 05:53
When Mitch McConnell starts saying we could use "less drama" in the White House, you know you have a problem.

It's becoming increasingly clear - even to some in the GOP - that there is a problem with Donald Trump.

The problem is that he seems incapable of acting presidential.

Maybe that's the new normal. Maybe we're all just going to have to adjust, get used to this new style of leadership. The problem is that this is not leadership. It's reality TV.

And that's unfortunate when instead of dismissing hopeful apprentices, you are dismissing the director of the FBI, and the man who is heading one of the probes into your administration.

President Trump remained true to his track record early yesterday, lashing out on his favorite method of communication - Twitter - to bash the appointment of a special counsel to head the various probes into Russian meddling in the U.S. elections.

Trump ranted that it is a "witch hunt."

Yeah, that's real presidential.

make a trip to dan dan in devon

Chester County Ramblings - Thu, 2017-05-18 19:11


Dan Dan in Devon is open in the old Ella’s Bistro spot behind where Braxton’s is. What a welcome change to the same old same old.

Taiwanese and Sichuan cuisine. And the food is delicious. Clean flavor combinations and very fresh, I will be coming back again!

Service was a little frazzled by the time we left because they just got slammed with diners.

They have a full bar, and the flora and fauna didn’t disappoint. I am thinking White Dog Cafe is missing some of their cougars. But then again if the cougars of the Main Line are migrating already, then you know Dan Dan is a hit!

Everything was delicious. Don’t pass up the signature Dan Dan noodles and the dumplings with Chili oil!

Dan Dan is located at 214 Sugartown Road Wayne, but it’s really Devon. Reservations are a good idea especially Thursday dinner service through the weekend. 484-580-8558
