Williamsport Joins Partnership For Safe Water’s Optimization Program

Williamsport Municipal Water Authority in Lycoming County recently became a member of a new program operated by the Partnership for Safe Water.

The Distribution Optimization Program is specifically focused on preserving distribution system integrity to include water quality preservation, hydraulic reliability and physical security.

Surface water, groundwater, and consecutive water systems are eligible to enroll in the voluntary program that consists of four phases including a commitment to the program, annual data collection and submittal, a self assessment phase, and a final phase of Excellence in Distribution System Operation.

Williamsport’s water system provides drinking water service to approximately 51,000 people.
