Source Water Educational Resources

This site is designed to provide information on the Source Water Protection Program and to provide quick links to additional sources of information that are available. This page was developed in partnership with the Minnesota Department of Health. In working with the communities in our state, we hope to increase public awareness of where drinking water comes from, how it can become contaminated, and how planning ahead can help prevent major problems with both supply and quality.

Our goal is to provide educational materials in the form of news releases, fact sheets, brochures, bill stuffers, children's materials, and others to help communities develop a viable approach to managing one of our most critical resources:  water.  Educational materials available on this Web site consist of:
