Are you READY to move forward and protect your water supply?

To learn more about Pennsylvania’s Source Water Protection Program and how it can benefit your water system or community, please contact your regional PADEP source water protection coordinator below.

The regional DEP Coordinator will work with you and your system to get started.  They will help you determine the best route forward given your goals and objectives. DEP has secured the services of a contractor (SSM Group) to help the department with mapping or delineating water sources and source water protection plan development.  There is even a program geared to small water systems like mobile home parks and home owner associations.

The sooner you get started, the sooner you’ll be protected.
