New Source Water Collaborative Forestry Resource for Conservation Districts

The Source Water Collaborative (SWC) and ASDWA worked with members of the National Association of Conservation Districts’ Forestry Subcommittee and the Southeastern Partnership for Forests & Water to develop a forestry outreach document. It is a resource for conservation districts and their partners on the role they play in protecting drinking water sources. With the recent investments through Inflation Reduction Act funding for Climate Smart Agriculture and Forestry, conservation districts are encouraged to work with drinking water partners to help implement forestry practices with landowners through their local conservation delivery services. Download and share the Forestry Resource Handout and view the associated SWC web page to help drive source water protection coordination with these partners.
