Source Water Environmental Education Team (SWEET) Overview & Fact Sheets
Source Water Environmental Education Teams (SWEETs) raise awareness and provide valuable education to Pennsylvania citizens and local officials to empower them to protect their sources of drinking water. Each SWEET team consists of three to five local water resource partners, such as public water system staff, watershed specialists, Cooperative Extension staff, educators, County Planners, and land conservancies, who work together and support the efforts of a regional or County Source Water Collaborative to raise awareness and conduct public education about drinking water protection.
