The Susquehanna River Basin Commission Wednesday announced a day-long workshop on Water Resource Management Considerations for Public Water Supply Managers to be held on November 9 at the Commission’s Conference Center located at 4423 N. Front St., Harrisburg from 8:15 a.m to 3:00 p.m.
The Commission has partnered with forward-thinking public water supply managers and planners to develop workshop content that is relevant and beneficial to public water suppliers.
The workshop will feature presentations from staff and representatives from Lycoming County Water and Sewer Authority, Tioga County Planning Commission, Mount Joy Borough Authority, and Ephrata Borough.
Topics on the agenda include water supply regionalization, managing unaccounted for water losses, advanced leak detection techniques, and the hiring and management of consultants.
“The Commission is committed to providing forums for the exchange of valuable information with municipal water suppliers. We developed this workshop to address common questions and offer regulatory guidance, and are pleased to be partnering directly with public water supply managers to convene this workshop,” said Executive Director Andrew Dehoff, P.E.
The workshop is being offered free of charge and has been pre-approved by the Department of Environmental Protection for two contact hours for Pennsylvania-certified drinking water operators.
The workshop has been made possible through a partnership with the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection as part of the Public Water Supply Assistance Program.
