Water

The Susquehanna River is the 16th largest river in the United States, and its drainage area encompasses 20,960 square miles within Pennsylvania’s borders. The river supplies more than 400 million gallons of drinking water per day to millions of people. It also provides 120 million gallons of water per day for agricultural operations in the state, as well as hundreds of millions of gallons for industrial uses.
