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
