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
