Tribal Source Water Protection Plan Guidance


Source Water Protection Plan Training—The EFC facilitated two training sessions in EPA Region 10 for Tribal water system staff that emphasized the importance and benefits of source water/wellhead protection. These training sessions took place during Native American Water Master Association (NAWMA) gatherings in EPA Region 10 and the EFC leveraged other funding sources to support the NAWMA gatherings.

Source Water Protection Plan Technical Assistance—The EFC will provide one-on-one technical assistance to three Tribal water systems in EPA Region 10. The EFC will train the system staff on the use of the guidance document and will assist the systems to complete a source water/well head protection plan.
