DEP Updates Veterans Day Hours, Water Sampling Procedures, Disaster Center Hours

Although the Department of Environmental Protection’s regional offices will be closed November 11 for Veterans Day, all state Disaster Recovery Centers will offer normal operating hours, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., to serve residents in areas affected by flooding.
Because of the shelf life on well water samples, residents who need to drop off test kits for analysis at DEP regional offices and DRCs should wait until the week of November 14 to do so. Test kits can be picked up at the regional offices and DRCs during posted operating hours.
The 12 DRCs across the state are available to assist residents with flood-recovery efforts and provide information on loans and unemployment services. They are located in Bradford, Columbia, Dauphin, Delaware, Huntingdon, Lancaster, Lebanon, Luzerne, Lycoming, Northumberland, Philadelphia and Wyoming counties.
The Lancaster County DRC at the M&T Bank Building in Lancaster and the Northumberland County DRC at the Career Link Building in Shamokin will close permanently November 11 at 7 p.m.
DEP’s regional offices will also be closed for Thanksgiving on November 24 and 25, so water-test kits must be dropped off before November 22 or not until November 28.
