Drinking Water Wastewater Treatment Plants

Pennsylvania state parks have 172 public water supplies.

Fresh drinking water is vital for park concession businesses, campgrounds, and water fountains.

The PA Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) developed new water regulations in 2009 that better address pathogens found in drinking water.

Under these requirements, a number of park water treatment systems need to be upgraded to meet the improved standards.
