Keystone Clean Water Team Receives National Designation

The Keystone Clean Water Team, a Pennsylvania non-profit organization dedicated to improving the health, safety, and welfare of our community and the environment based in Carbon County, recently received national recognition from the Nebraska-based Groundwater Foundation, which designated the organization as a Groundwater Guardian Community.

This is the 15th consecutive year the group has received the award.

“Our ROA, results oriented activities, in 2014 included the development of a social media program, Citizen Groundwater Database, and Private Well Owner Informational Workshops in Pennsylvania,” said Brian Oram, president of the Keystone Clean Water Team’s board of directors. “There is no better place to get the facts and learn from other citizens about our water resources and about protecting the health, safety and welfare of our community.

Oram said that one of the greatest risks residents face stems from a general lack of awareness of the problems that, if left unchecked, can threaten the health and safety of their families.

“Information is our greatest asset and our new site will allow us to share it more efficiently and with more people than ever before,” Oram said. “We can help area residents keep their drinking water safe and learn more about conservation efforts that will protect this important natural resource for future generations.”
