Source Water Protection Plans
Minnesota Department of Health
Development and implementation of community Source Water Protection Plans to expand the rate that community water suppliers come into the wellhead protection program so that all communities will have wellhead protection plans in place by 2020.
This initiative accelerates the number of communities the Minnesota Department of Health is able to assist in the planning and implementation process. Planning and hydrogeology staff are assigned to seven source water protection planning districts that span Minnesota. They provide technical assistance and support to local source water protection committees, meeting with them on a regular basis to collaborate in plan development and implementation.
