The Shippensburg Borough Authority’s Gunter Valley Water Treatment Plant, located in Cumberland and Franklin counties, recently became the newest member of the Partnership for Safe Water Treatment Program, a voluntary effort to provide safe drinking water.
Presently, the water system provides drinking water service to approximately 14,004 people.
The Partnership for Safe Water is made up of DEP, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the PA Section American Water Works Association and other drinking water organizations. Its goal is to implement preventative measures that are based on optimizing treatment plant performance.
Currently, 119 surface water treatment plants serving over 6.1 million people are now involved in PA's Partnership for Safe Water Treatment Program.(Reprinted from the March 19 DEP News. Click Here to sign up for your own copy and back issues.)
