Water: Source Water Protection

Source Water Protection

The  drinking water we receive from our local drinking water utilities or  individual wells comes from ground water, streams, rivers, springs or lakes in a watershed. Although most water requires some treatment before use, protecting this source water is an important part of providing safe drinking water to the public.


Protecting drinking water sources usually requires the combined  efforts of many partners such as public water systems, communities, resource managers and the public.
