  • On-Demand Webinar - Planning for Private Water Supplies

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Private water wells and springs are vital to Pennsylvania’s rural water infrastructure, which provides drinking water to approximately 3 million residents and farms. Because Pennsylvania lacks state regulations covering private water supplies, their proper management becomes the voluntary responsibility of homeowners who often lack a proper understanding of how they should be managed. In this webinar, Peter Wulfhorst with Penn State Extension will review results obtained from over 30 years of research and outreach, help municipal officials understand how they can help ensure the viability of private drinking water supplies, and provide available resources for municipalities and homeowners.

Join archivist Tyler Stump and learn about the new policy and how electronic recordkeeping requirements are changing. Stump will also be discussing electronic records best practices that can help your township effectively and efficiently store its electronic records.
