About , acres are forested, 42, acres are non-forest, acres are covered by water (primarily the Allegheny Reservoir). Regional Cooperation for Water Quality Improvement in Southwestern Pennsylvania. the region’s resources and locational advantages moved it rapidly toward industrial production, especially of iron products. water planning and management in southwestern Pennsylvania is highly fragmented; federal and state governments, 11 counties. Because population density for the region is highest in Allegheny County, which relies heavily on surface water, the majority of people in the region rely on treated surface water for their drinking water (see Figure ). Major surface water sources of drinking water in the region include the Allegheny River, the Monongahela River, the Ohio. management in the Pittsburgh region.
