Description

Curious to know where your drinking water comes from? Interested in a behind-the-scenes tour of the DeHart Dam? Take a day to Consider the Source – the source of your drinking water. Please join Capital Region Water in Clark’s Valley on Saturday, May 19, 2018 for a litter cleanup and drinking water tour.

Volunteers are needed to prevent litter from making its way into the DeHart Reservoir, the source of Harrisburg’s drinking water. The day begins with a safety briefing and orientation and wraps up with lunch and a facility tour. Volunteers will have the chance to learn more about how their water is collected in the DeHart Reservoir and makes the nearly 25-mile journey to Harrisburg.

Registration is required to participate to ensure your safety and security. Please let us know you’re joining us and we’ll plan appropriately for transportation, supplies and logistics. We also ask that you print and bring with you a copy of the Volunteer Agreement and Waiver of Liability. To participate, we must receive a signed copy. Plan to print this and bring it with you on Saturday, May 19. We also ask you to bring photo identification if joining us for a tour.

The litter cleanup will be from 9:30am to 11:00am with lunch and tours immediately following.

Lunch, water and all supplies will be provided.

Special thanks to the Doc Fritchey Chapter of Trout Unlimited, Clarks Creek Watershed Preservation Association, and PennDot’s Adopt-A-Highway Program for the ongoing support.
