Source Water Protection Week


AWWA invites water utilities, sections and other partners to join the Association in declaring Sept. 26-Oct. 2 the first-ever “Source Water Protection Week.”

Throughout the week, we will be raising awareness about the importance of caring for our beautiful drinking water sources. Source Water Protection Week materials are now available, and many additional resources will be added between now and Sept. 26. 

Why Source Water Protection Week?

The best way to assure we have high quality drinking water at the tap is to protect our beautiful water sources. If we keep our rivers, lakes and underground wells free from pollution, it's easier and less expensive to keep water safe and healthy.
