Sponsors, advocates urge support for water fee bill

Soon-to-be-introduced legislation by Rep. Mike Sturla (D-Lancaster) to place a fee on water use received support from lawmakers and advocates Monday morning.

Depending on the type of water withdrawn and its subsequent use, the fee would be either 1/100th of a cent or 1/10th of a cent and is estimated to be able to generate $245 million annually for Pennsylvania.
