The DTMA owns and operates the three systems which supply Doylestown Township water, per an agreement between DTMA and Doylestown Township Board of Supervisors, for forty (40) years starting February 16, 1993 and running through February 16, 2033. DTMA is an operating Authority and will follow guidelines per Township approved water utility master plan as prepared by Huth Engineers. DTMA agrees the Board of Supervisors must approve:

DTMA agrees to establish an annual budget, pay all obligations, reimburse Township for expenses related to use of Township facilities and staff, and to promote expansion into other Central Bucks areas. Members are appointed to a five year term.
