Source Water Protection

This program assists local communities utilizing groundwater and surface water for their municipal drinking water supply systems in protecting their water source. A source water protection program minimizes the potential for contamination by identifying and protecting the area that contributes water to municipal water supply source. A source water protection program also includes management strategies to reduce contamination risk, contingency and new source planning, and public education and outreach.
