    Source Water Protection for Watershed Coalitions Workshop Presentations

    The Source Water Protection Workshop was held on Thursday, March 23, 2017 from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. We explored opportunities for Watershed Coalitions and partners to prevent contamination of sources of drinking water supply within their watersheds together and within their respective missions. Peers and partners learned about common activities that may contaminate drinking water sources, source water protection planning to address them, and how to develop an action plan to fit their own watershed.
