The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection has been working on a new State Water Plan for several years and is now set to hold a series of information sessions and public hearings. The first will be held Monday Sept 8 at the seven fields community center. It will focus on the Ohio River watershed. The plan looks at what resources the state has right now and what demand is expected to be as far as 30 years out. The plan deals with drinking water, industrial needs (including navigability), and recreational needs. The plan can be found on line at the DEP web site and public comment can be made there.
