CAPITAL REGION WATER ANNOUNCES THREE COMMUNITY MEETINGS TO LEARN MORE AND PROVIDE FEEDBACK

ON A STORMWATER FEE PROPOSAL AND IMPLEMENTATION PLAN

 HARRISBURG, PA (July 18, 2019) — Capital Region Water invites the Harrisburg community to three events to learn more about and provide comment on a proposed Stormwater Fee Proposal and Implementation Plan. Capital Region Water recently unveiled the proposal and implementation plan as the next phase of the City Beautiful H2O Program, a program necessary to improve the health of local waterways, address neighborhood needs such as localized flooding and beautification, rehabilitate failing infrastructure, and meet state and federal regulatory clean water requirements.

The meeting format allows residents to move through educational stations to learn more about the challenges of stormwater pollution, regulatory obligations, and solutions, including a new rate structure to fairly fund stormwater expenses. The final station will allow participants to comment on the proposal and plan. The August 6th event will be part of the 2019 National Night Out hosted by the Harrisburg Police Department. Light refreshments will be served at all events.
