Planning to Protect Private Water Supplies

Private water wells and springs are vital to the rural water infrastructure in Pennsylvania providing drinking water to approximately three million rural residents and farms. Because Pennsylvania lacks state regulations covering private water supplies, their proper management becomes the voluntary responsibility of rural homeowner who often lack a proper understanding of their management. In the absence of state regulations and proper voluntary measures, some municipalities have attempted to fill the gap by enacting local ordinances for private water systems.

This webinar will provide results from over 30 years of research and outreach at Penn State to help planners understand private drinking water supplies and available resources for municipalities and homeowners.

Webinar participants will   

  1. Understand the types of private water supplies and their construction along with common water quality problems and applicable water treatment processes.
  2. Understand innovative tools and resources available from Penn State Extension to help municipalities and rural residents properly manage private drinking water supplies.
  3. Understand how municipalities can assist homeowners in preventing contaminated water supplies in their community

Approved for 1.25 CM credit
