Webinar 1 & 2

Source Water Protection is a key to a multi-barrier approach to water treatment. Protecting source waters has many benefits in reducing long term impacts of climate change on our environment and water supplies. Extreme weather can impact water quantity and quality by resulting in contamination, flooding, erosion, and increased infrastructure maintenance.

This webinar will focus on Source Water Protection, (what it is? what it means?) including practical ideas about what we can do in our local watershed or Community to improve our resilience to changes from climate or development and better protect our source water, now and in future.

Topics: 

  1. How to identify and quantify risk using tools like the Drinking Water Safety Plan
  2. Building resiliency and redundancy into our source water diversion.
  3. Protection of source water using wetlands and bio-engineering methods
  4. A case study of a City and implementation of a Source Water Protection Plan.
