On Tuesday, September 14, 2021, Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Secretary Patrick McDonnell will dedicate the recently constructed public drinking water system in the Village of Intercourse, in Leacock Township, Lancaster County. The water system was constructed due to the area’s groundwater being contaminated with trichloroethylene (TCE), which had adversely impacted private drinking wells. Approximately 450 homes and businesses are connected to the system.
The project was engineered and constructed using $22 million from DEP’s Hazardous Sites Cleanup Act (HSCA) which provides funding to address releases of hazardous substances that pose a threat to human health and the environment.
