Creating a Source Water Protection Plan is a five step process that pays big dividends. Consider the RISK versus the REWARD.
When starting out, it might seem to be a major undertaking, but many operators are surprised by how little resistance they encounter and how much support they receive when the process begins.

Drinking Water Protection Action Checklist
To help you understand what’s involved and ways to take action to reduce risks and implement your Source Water Protection Plan, we’ve created a Drinking Water Protection Action Checklist (WORD doc) to help you through the process. It provides a variety of SWP management measures for the typical kinds of land uses and activities found in most communities. Use it to get started, and as a multi-year tool to set and record priority action steps and engage partners. It can help you organize the stakeholders, resources and information you’ll need along the way.
