This manual is intended to help Source Water Protection (SWP) Partners protect the raw sources of their drinking water from Potential Contaminant Sources (PCSs). (For additional guidance, Source Water Protection Partners might also refer to the State Source Water Assessment and Protection Programs Guidance (1997 Guidance), EPA 816-R-97-009). Source Water Protection Partners involved in SWP include: community leaders, local officials, local-agency and public water supply personnel, community-based environmental groups, watershed and public organizations, farmers and businesses, concerned citizens and state source water protection implementing agencies. This manual provides the reasons for updating your state's Source Water assessment, explains how Partners are major players, and describes opportunities for enhancing/updating your state's assessment with: More accurate delineations; Contaminant Source Inventories (CSIs) updated with local information; Modified or recalculated Susceptibility Determinations.
