Potable Water

Potable Water Services is responsible for the production, treatment and distribution of potable water to University Park facilities.

The University has ten permitted potable water wells. Eight of these wells are actively used to supply an average 3 million gallons per day demand for water. Prior to distribution, three chlorine houses are used to treat the water to meet regulatory standards. In addition, routine testing of the water is performed and the results are sent to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection.
