Source Water Protection Workshop Set For January 13 In York County
A workshop on source water protection for York County water systems and municipalities will be held on January 13 at the York Water Company Employee Center in York, Pa from 9:00 a.m. to approximately 2:30 p.m.

Water system attendees will learn how to use their source water assessment report to develop a local SWP program and how SWP area management actions and contingency planning can reduce risks to the quality of drinking water sources.

This session will also allow interaction with others in York County to exchange information about local drinking water protection efforts and activities that support those efforts.

The workshop is primarily intended for water system officials and operators, but appointed and elected municipal and county officials, planners, members of organizations interested in protecting water resources, and area water professionals are encouraged to attend.

The workshop is DEP Course #1660 and is titled: “How to Develop Wellhead Protection Plans for Small Systems,” but is being presented so that water systems of all sizes and source type will gain valuable information. The workshop is worth 4.5 contact hours for eligible certified drinking water operators who attend the session.

The workshop is being held in conjunction with the York County Conservation District, York County Planning Commission, the Watershed Alliance of York County, the York Water Company, and Department of Environmental Protection and the Pennsylvania Rural Water Association.

There is a $20 fee for this workshop and lunch will be provided. All attendees are requested to pre-register through the PRWA website or contact the office with questions at 814-353-9302.
