Minnesota Rural Water Association's Source Water Protection
Program offers an opportunity for public water supply providers to
develop plans to protect the quality of drinking water using local
community resources. MRWA's Source Water Specialists
are available to provide information
and training for City Councils, Boards, Utility Commissions, other
local community leaders, and Source Water Protection Team members.
