National Association Of Water Companies, Pennsylvania Chapter

drinking water and wastewater utilities. NAWC-PA member companies provide safe and adequate drinking water service to over 3.1 million Pennsylvanians in 492 communities in 39 counties. In addition, NAWC-PA member companies provide wastewater service to approximately 195,000 Pennsylvanians in 34 communities across nine counties.

JT Hand, Chairman of the PA Chapter, describes how Milliron Goodman has assisted the NAWC-PA member companies in reaching its legislative and regulatory goals.

Legislative Goals

NAWC-PA’s top priority is reliably delivering safe, high-quality water and wastewater service to our customers. The stewardship of a community’s water and wastewater utility service is a public trust, which our member companies diligently protect. Check below to see how our Advocacy and Public Affairs services worked for NAWC-PA.

Outcome & Successes

Milliron Goodman has been a leader in advancing the legislative and regulatory goals for the water and wastewater industries. For example, the Environmental Quality Board (EQB) recently adopted its final rulemaking which will improve public health protection by setting maximum contaminant level goals (MCLG) and maximum contaminant levels (MCL) for two forever chemicals, per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) – perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS). Milliron Goodman worked with the member companies of NAWC-PA and industry representatives on the Public Water System Technical Assistance Center (TAC) Board in providing comments to the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and EQB and synthesizing those comments into cohesive arguments.

Milliron Goodman led the industry’s efforts by coordinating responses and collecting technical information requested by the DEP on projected costs regarding monitoring and treatment. Milliron Goodman also engaged with the standing legislative committees and other regulatory agencies to provide technical information and industry examples regarding treatment methods and sampling data.

The final form PFAS MCL Rule strikes a balance between public health protection and costs which enables our member companies to continue to uphold our goal to reliably deliver safe, high-quality water to our customers.

Looking forward, Milliron Goodman will be heavily leaned upon in the future as NAWC-PA’s member companies continue to navigate the complex legislative and regulatory environment in Pennsylvania.
