The document addresses the potential impact of light industrial activities on wellhead protection areas. The term 'light industry' refers to industrial, commercial, or retail establishments that manage substances or engage in manufacturing, fabrication, or service activities that are one step or more removed from the production of primary products from raw material. These activities, which may pose a potential threat to ground-water quality, are minimally-regulated or non-regulated by Federal laws. Several States and local governments have adopted innovative approaches for controlling light industries. These approaches may involve source identification, zoning and other controls to limit land uses in wellhead areas, and public education and technology transfer to encourage industries to adopt management controls. Other jurisdictions have also placed strict prohibitions on activities that are allowed in wellhead areas, including restricting specific light industry types.
