What's New

  • Chester County Impaired Waters Map (Impairments as of January 2014 Draft PADEP Report)
    • The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP) has an ongoing program to asess the quality of waters in Pennsylvania and identify streams and other bodies of water that do not meet water quality standards as "impaired." Periodic reports on the quality of waters in the Commonwealth are required under the federal Clean Water Act.

      This map of Chester County Impaired Waters illustrates draft data provided by PADEP in conjunction with the Draft 2014 report, "2014 Pennsylvania Integrated Water Quality Monitoring and Assessment Report", which can be found at the PADEP web site.
