HARRISBURG, PA – The Susquehanna River Basin Commission (Commission) announces a workshop on Developing Aquifer Testing Plans and Groundwater Withdrawal Applications to be offered on two dates, April 5, 2016, and May 17, 2016. The day-long workshops will be held at the Commission’s Conference Center located at 4423 N. Front Street, Harrisburg, PA 17110.
One purpose of this Commission-developed workshop is to provide guidance to small public water suppliers and their consultants on how to best evaluate their groundwater resources in accordance with the Commission’s aquifer testing process. The Commission depends upon the quality of these evaluations for making sound decisions for the sustainable development, use, and protection of the groundwater resources of the Basin.
“The Commission is pleased to be able to provide this valuable training that will assist small water suppliers in completing high quality evaluations,” comments Andrew Dehoff, Executive Director of the Commission. He added, “It is our belief that workshop attendees will walk away with the knowledge and tools necessary to quickly and efficiently navigate the Commission’s review and approval process.”
The workshops are being offered free of charge. Each workshop will contain six hours of instruction and certificates of attendance will be available for those who are seeking continuing education credits. Each workshop is limited to the first 60 participants who complete registration.
