DEP Celebrates 10th Anniversary of Potomac River Partnership

On November 20, Acting DEP Secretary Dana Aunkst joined federal, state and local officials in Gettysburg, Adams County, at the annual meeting and 10th anniversary of the Potomac Partnership, a unique public-private partnership formed to safeguard drinking water sources for more than five million people in the Potomac River Basin.
During the meeting, Aunkst touted the recent 30th anniversary of Pennsylvania's Safe Drinking Water Act and reaffirmed the state's commitment to the Potomac Partnership. The meeting also highlighted the 40th anniversary of the federal Safe Drinking Water Act and included discussion on key successes and emerging challenges in the watershed.
The Potomac Partnership is comprised of more than 20 government agencies and water suppliers. For more information, visit the Potomac Partnership webpage.
