Greater Orwigsburg Town Survey

It’s doing this by asking the opinion of those valued most – its residents, property owners, businesses, and visitors who live, work, shop, and enjoy life in the greater Orwigsburg area.

The “Greater Orwigsburg Town Survey” has been mailed to every household and business in the borough, requesting responses be returned by December 1. It is also available by download or submitted directly online.

The 8-page survey asks citizens their opinions of performance vs. expectations on a number of themed topics – Emergency Services, Infrastructure Needs, Basic Municipal Services, Quality of Life, In-Town Business Services, and Future Growth.

Additional topics explore areas of how services are funded, recreational needs, community celebrations, how citizens receive information, and town traits that must be preserved. Finally, the survey asks what people like most about Orwigsburg, what detracts, and what is the most important issue officials need to consider.

Each topic details services currently provided, future needs, and an open-ended request for comments, pro or con, and suggestions. Survey respondents can remain anonymous, but demographic information is requested.

Results of the survey will guide Orwigsburg officials in their daily attention/decision-making and be the basis of the 10-year review and revision to the Orwigsburg Borough Comprehensive Plan.

In addition to the printed survey mailing, residents and others living outside the borough may download the survey or click the online survey link directly from the borough website (Orwigsburg.net) or Facebook page (Facebook.com/Orwigsburg).

The online survey address is:


Completed surveys are to be mailed to Orwigsburg Borough or can be deposited in drop-off boxes located at the Orwigsburg Post Office lobby area, M&T Bank, Orwigsburg Library, Boyer’s Food Market, Orwigsburg Borough Hall, and the Schuylkill EMS ambulance building parking lot.

The Orwigsburg Source Water Protection Plan

The Orwigsburg Municipal Waterworks (OMW) utilizes local groundwater wells to provide safe, clean drinking water to our residents. In an effort to protect our drinking water and keep it safe and clean, OMW is working with the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PA DEP) to develop a Source Water Protection Plan. The plan is a voluntary program that will help ensure the quality of our groundwater for future years.

OMW will use a variety of management options to develop a comprehensive approach to source water protection in an effort to protect our water supplies from the Potential Sources of Contamination (PSOC’s). OMW will work cooperatively with organizations, other municipalities, and community partners to implement this Source Water Protection Plan.

In the event of an accident or spill that has the potential to impact our water supplies, OMW will initiate an Emergency Response Plan (ERP) to minimize any potential impacts. OMW maintains an ERP and updates it regularly. The plan includes emergency contacts and provisions for alternate sources of water. OMW will work closely with local and county first responders in the event of a spill or accident that may threaten the water supply.

We trust that the results of this Source Water Protection Plan will benefit not only our residents served by the Orwigsburg Municipal Waterworks, but also Schuylkill County residents living and working in our local area.
If you have any questions concerning the Orwigsburg Source Water Protection Plan, please contact Dave Teter at 570.657.0115, or at dave@orwigsburg.net
