Cranberry Township, located in Butler County, recently became a member of the PfSW “Distribution Optimization Program”, a voluntary effort to provide safe drinking water to all customers. Presently, The Township’s Water System provides drinking water service to approximately 9,500 people.

 

The Distribution System Optimization program is similar to the existing water treatment plant program.  However, the distribution program is specifically focused on preserving distribution system integrity to include water quality preservation, hydraulic reliability, and physical security.  Surface water, groundwater, and consecutive water systems are all eligible to enroll in the new Distribution Optimization Program.  The program consists of 4 phases which include a commitment to the program, annual data collection and submittal, a self assessment phase, and a final phase of Excellence in Distribution System Operation.

 

The PfSW is a voluntary cooperative effort between the Pennsylvania DEP, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, AWWA and other drinking water organizations.  Its goal is to implement preventative measures that are based on optimizing treatment plant performance and distribution system performance.  By participating in the program, Cranberry Township is working to provide an additional measure of protection to their drinking water consumers.
