Water Quality Enhancements

NWLCA Water Treatment Facility Sustainability Site


In 2011, the Northwestern Lancaster County Authority (the public water and sewer provider throughout parts of Penn Township) envisioned creating a Sustainability Site open to the public at the Water Treatment Plant. The site at 306 Doe Run Road incorporates a loop interpretive trail with informational signage demonstrating various sustainability elements, including:

  • Natural Meadow
  • Riparian Buffer
  • Solar Energy Array
  • Rain Garden
  • No Mow Lawn & Native Plantings
  • Pervious Paving

Chiques Creek Watershed Alliance’s Logan Park Floodplain Restoration


In 2015, n the other side of Route 772 from Mummau Park, a Floodplain Restoration project was completed along Rife Run! In 2012-2013, LandStudies helped the CCWA develop a Restoration Masterplan for the segment of Rife Run flowing through the park. The CCWA obtained grants to pay for the project, which was completed in 2015. By balancing stream health and the recreation needs of park users, this project will certainly enhance the community.
