Clean Water Fund has produced this very informative flyer outlining groundwater basics and the impact contamination of that groundwater would have on our health and safety.

Writing Riparian Buffer Ordinances

We thank The Chesapeake Bay Foundation and their gracious offer that allow us to post their "Protecting Your Water Resources - A Glimpse of a Model Municipal Ordinance"

And a big thank you also to the Delaware Riverkeepers Network who has allowed us to link to their Protecting Streams in Pennsylvania: A Resource for Municipal Officials which is a great starter guide for individuals to understand what to expect from officials who have the responsibility to be stewards of PA's natural resources.
