Bradford Woods Resident Reappointed To Water Conservation Committee, Says Turzai
Rep. Mike Turzai (R-Allegheny) announced today that Gerald Feldman of Bradford Woods has been reappointed to the Ohio Basin Regional Water Resources Committee.
“Jerry’s extensive knowledge of businesses that are directly tied to the use and conservation of water make him the right man for the job,” Turzai said. “He has experienced water restrictions in times of severe draught and is actively involved in cost-effective efforts to reuse and clean water before it is returned to the Ohio River watershed.”
The Water Resources Planning Act created six regional water resource committees to represent Pennsylvania’s geographic areas in providing regional input in the development of the state water plan.
Seventeen members of each regional committee either represent or work in the field of agriculture; public water authorities; public sewage authorities; industrial, commercial and energy production enterprises; conservation interests; water resource education experience and municipal governments.
The Ohio Basin Regional Committee guides the development of the statewide plan as it relates to the watershed drainage area of the Ohio River and its tributaries. The committee will help the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) identify critical water planning areas.
Feldman also serves as co-chairman of the Statewide Water Resource Committee.
“With his qualifications and background, Jerry is the right person at the right time for the right job,” Turzai added.
