2013 Source Water Protection Workshop Series Part 3: Tools and Resources for Source Water Protection

Public drinking water system operators and local government officials play a crucial role in protecting source water in their communities. Many tools and resources are available to assist local governments and public drinking water systems with source water protection.

The Tools and Resources for Source Water Protection Workshop highlighted the source water protection roadmap and vision created for water utilities by the Water Research Foundation and the American Water Works Association (AWWA) Source Water Protection Standard. Attendees learned about tools and resources available to assist local governments and public water systems with source water protection efforts.

This workshop was the third of a three-part series on ground water and source water protection.

  • Part One: Learn about the fundamentals of ground water (held in 2011).
  • Part Two: Learn about potential contaminants that can impact source water (held in 2012).
  • Part Three: Find out what to do to protect source water.
