Executive Summary

The Roamingwood Sewer & Water Association was awarded a “PA Growing Greener Grant” to aid in the development of a Source Water Protection Program for the Roamingwood Sewer & Water Association (PWS ID # 2640025).  The Roamingwood Sewer & Water Association provides drinking water from five groundwater sources to over 2,979 private homes and 24 community buildings within the planned residential development known as The Hideout in Salem and Lake Township in Wayne County.  In 1798, Wayne County was subdivided from Northampton County and named after General Anthony Wayne.   Wayne County contains over 488,250 acres that has been divided into 28 local municipalities.  Based on the 2000 Census, the rate of growth in Wayne County during the 1990’s was 19.5 % with an estimated population of over 47,700 in 2000.  In the Commonwealth, Wayne County ranks 3rd with respect to rate of population growth and 18th with respect to density. The Hideout is a planned residential community consisting of approximately 2,979 single-family homes nestled in the Pocono Mountains of Northeastern Pennsylvania.
