Hilltown Dam is owned by the Neshaminy Water Resources Authority and maintained by Bucks County. The dam and reservoir are used as a flood control structure for the downstream town of Chalfont, Pennsylvania. The impoundment was designed by the United States Department of Agriculture, Soil Conservation Service, in 1977, and the structure was officially completed in 1980. The dam and its appurtenant facilities are considered to be in good condition. The dam is classified as an Intermediate size structure with a High hazard classification, consistent with its potential in the event of failure for extensive property damage and loss of life downstream of the dam and in Chalfont, Pennsylvania.
