Source Water News

ASDWA’s Source Water News (SW News) is intended to improve outreach and information sharing for state staff engaged in source water protection and sustainability, climate change, and nutrient pollution related efforts. This new “blog” format will become our principal communication vehicle for sharing news and other interesting bits of information with state source water contacts and drinking water program staff. The news and information we share on the blog is expected to be helpful and useful, but not critically time sensitive.
