Tioga County Source Water Protection Coalition

 

The Tioga Source Water Protection Coalition formed in 2011 with a grant and assistance from WREN, the Water Resources Education Network, a project of the League of Women Voters of Pennsylvania Citizen Education Fund.

The collaborative effort reflects a growing trend among public water systems  in Pennsylvania whereby water utilities within a county or region are meeting and working together to address risks identified by PA DEP in their source water protection plans.  They are meeting regularly to work on proactive ways to protect vulnerable drinking water recharge areas from a variety of threats, ranging from natural gas development to agricultural runoff.
