Just a heads up for our Capitol Region Water customers....

Capital Region Water will begin temporarily pumping and treating water from its backup water source, the Susquehanna River, on Monday, November 4, 2019. This year, Capital Region Water will be blending with the primary water source, the DeHart Reservoir. This short-term run is an industry best practice to ensure reliability during a potential emergency.

“Capital Region Water's top priority is protecting public health by providing safe, reliable drinking water,” Capital Region Water CEO Charlotte Katzenmoyer. “All state and federal drinking water standards will be met during this temporary exercise since the treatment process remains the same regardless of the source water. Customers with a sensitive palate may notice a slightly different taste, but there will be no changes to the appearance of the water or water pressure.”

Capital Region Water’s water supply system is fully redundant, and Capital Region Water’s water treatment plant can treat water from either the DeHart Reservoir or Susquehanna River during typical conditions or during emergencies. The water treatment plant, called the Robert E. Young Water Services Center, was constructed in 1994 and currently treats about 7 million gallons of drinking water per day for customers in the City of Harrisburg and parts of Penbrook Borough, and Lower Paxton, Susquehanna, and Swatara Townships.

The short-term run will last approximately 14 days. By November 17, 2019, all water treated and distributed will be from our primary source, the DeHart Reservoir. Please contact Capital Region Water at 888-510-0606 if you have any questions.

Penbrook we don't like having to tow cars. Please spread the word to your neighbors for the rest of this week. Signs are everywhere at least two days prior to the no parking date and time. ... See MoreSee Less

Yes Ms. Wagner it is and fortunately it's not Penbrook residents that we're dealing with.

My kids are reading the signs and reminding me. It's pretty simple.

LOL, if you DO like seeing cars there is GTOger on YouTube. A parking lot with over 200,000 people following it. It's hilarious! Shout out to Royersford a long time ago when I was younger and so often forgot to get the darn car off the street for street cleaning. They darn well should have taught me a lesson and towed me more than a few times.

Happy Friday Penbrook! One week from today the following streets will need to be free of vehicles for street sweeping: Canby from township line to Walnut, 28th from Walnut to Elm and all of Houston St. All Streets will be posted at least two days prior to the respective areas being cleaned. ... See MoreSee Less

Good morning Penbrook. As we continue our updates regarding street sweeping next week here is the line up for streets on Wednesday and Thursday (9th/10th). Wednesday will be the even side of Hoffer St., Butler from Walnut to 28th, 26th from Elm to Boas, Banks from 27th to 28th, Boas from 27th to 28th, 29th from Walnut to Banks and Penbrook Av from Walnut to 30th. Please move your vehicles from those areas so our crew can get the street cleaned up. ... See MoreSee Less

We'll sweep the streets however we need to in this town! Hopefully next week you'll see an actual machine doing it and it won't be one of my officers behind the wheel.😎

Items are not allowed to be placed in the street to reserve parking spaces or for any other reason. This includes during snow storms but let's not start talking about that nasty four letter word yet ok?

What if there are trash containers in the street? Asking for my neighbor who uses theirs to “reserve” the parking spots in front of their house. 😐

Will signs be posted?

No leaves will be later

Is it okay to put leaves out for this or not?

I was rather puzzled at the officer out with a broom this morning...
