Booklet Offers Water Conservation Tips


B.F. Environmental Consultants has made the booklet, The Pennsylvania Guide for Groundwater for Private Well Owners: What Do the Numbers Mean, available through the Water Research Center portal at The booklet provides general information explaining certified water testing, chain-of-custody and drinking water regulations and standards, plus information related to the health (primary standards) or aesthetic (secondary standards) concerns for each parameter and provides information on water quality parameters that do not specifically have a drinking water limit. The booklet is part of the effort to support the Citizens Groundwater and Surfacewater Database, a grassroots effort to track change in groundwater quality in Pennsylvania.

“The goal of this booklet is to help educate and inform citizens on issues related to water conservation, ensuring that private water supply systems produce safe drinking water for your family, protecting the long-term quality of our streams and drinking water sources, and helping you to understand the potential sources of pollution to our water resources,” says the booklet’s author Brian Oram, a professional geologist, soil scientist and founder of B.F. Environmental Consultants.
