New Free Webinar Series: “Findings from the Enabling Source Water Protection Project”

ASDWA is pleased to announce this new series of five free source water protection webinars. Register Now at, and pass this along to your friends and colleagues. Registration is open to anyone who would like to participate!

The Enabling Source Water Protection team, led by The Trust for Public Land and the Smart Growth Leadership Institute, with support from the River Network and the Association of State Drinking Water Administrators, worked with eight state partners over a three-year period on projects to improve drinking water source protection. The projects aimed to help states work across political and programmatic boundaries to better align planning, economic development, regulation, and conservation to protect drinking water sources at the local and watershed levels. Now that work with the eight states is nearing completion, the team and state partners will report on the most innovative, replicable state agency approaches to protect drinking water in a series of five webinars during the fall of 2012. The dates and titles of the webinars are as follows.

• Wednesday, September 5: GIS tools to assist state drinking water and clean water programs and non-government partners.
• Wednesday, September 19: Models for improving collaboration between state source water and clean water programs.
• Thursday, October 11: Non-traditional sources of funding for source water protection.
• Tuesday, October 30: Successful state agency efforts to support and coordinate with local planning activities.
• Thursday, November 15: Incorporate source water protection in state economic strategies.
