The Birdsboro Municipal Authority Water Plant, located in Berks County, recently became the newest member of the Partnership for Safe Water Treatment Program, a voluntary effort to provide safe drinking water. Presently, the water system provides drinking water service to approximately 5,353 people.  The Birdsboro Municipal Authority Water Plant is the 3rd plant to join the treatment program in Berks County.

 

The Partnership for Safe Water is made up of DEP, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Pennsylvania Section American Water Works Association (PA-AWWA) and other drinking water organizations.  Its goal is to implement preventative measures that are based on optimizing treatment plant performance. The treatment program is specifically geared toward identifying weaknesses in plant operation, design and administration that could lead to a breakthrough of waterborne disease-causing organisms into the finished water that is distributed to consumers. Correcting these weaknesses helps prevent waterborne disease outbreaks from pathogenic organisms like Cryptosporidium and Giardia. By participating in the program, the Birdsboro Municipal Authority Water Plant is working to provide an additional measure of protection to its drinking water consumers.

 

Currently, 119 surface water treatment plants serving over 5.8 million people are involved in Pennsylvania’s Partnership for Safe Water Treatment Program.
