Guidance for setting up wellhead protection programs is available at the state and federal levels, but local initiative is the key to developing an effective program. Each community can best determine how to develop its own wellhead protection program by taking into account local hydrogeological characteristics, land uses, and political and economic conditions. The publication is designed to help small community decision makers, utility personnel, and other interested community members take intiative at the local level. It provides the basic information needed to begin a wellhead protection program.
