What is the Status of Your Water System’s Source Water Protection Program?

PA Safe Drinking Water regulations direct public water suppliers to find and utilize the best sources available and to take measures necessary to protect those sources by defining wellhead protection and source water protection, setting permitting requirements for groundwater resources, and setting forth requirements for state approval of a local Source Water Protection Program.

Unfortunately, because the SWP program is voluntary, far too few PA DEP-approved Sourcewater Protection Plans are in place.

That means many drinking water sources FACE SIGNIFICANT RISKS.
