A Point Source of contaminants is a single identifiable localized source of pollution.

All point sources that have the potential to contaminate a water supply are identified in a preliminary database search, and mapped in Zones I, II, and III (or A, B, C) for the water system. Potential Point Sources of contaminants include:

Once identified, all potential Point Sources of contaminants are ranked by the level of risk they pose to the water supply: A (Highest Risk) through F (Lowest Risk).

These rankings help guide the Steering Committee in setting priorities for source water protection efforts. EMPHASIS IS PLACED on PSOCs ranked A and B.
Non point sources must also be considered, because in some areas, they’re an even GREATER CONCERN. GO >>
