Agency and small utility source water protection watershed workshops project
Source Water Protection Watershed Workshops – The EFC, in cooperation with EPA Region 10, Geos Institute Working Waters initiative, WildEarth Guardians and the Drinking Water Providers Partnership will develop, manage logistics and facilitate a series of at least 10 watershed specific workshops. The goal of these workshops is to bring together source water protection and watershed subject matter experts, agencies that own or manage property within a watershed, and the utilities that rely on that water as a drinking water source. The workshops will be an opportunity for participants to share and learn together—to gain understanding about how planning and projects within the watershed impact public drinking water systems, and the importance of source water and wellhead protection. The workshops will be held from April through November 2018. Expected number of participants in each workshop is 20 – 30.
The EFC will research the source water protection field for local subject matter experts, develop a stakeholder invitation list, arrange all workshop logistics, manage both online and onsite registration, print workshop materials and facilitate workshop discussions.
