Abstract The benefits of avoiding contamination of community drinking water sources are greater than the costs of implementing a local prevention program for wellhead protection. Wellhead protection (WHP) offers community leaders a less expensive approach to protecting public health and avoiding the costs of remediating future contamination of their ground water sources of drinking water. This analysis of seven communities shows that, on average, dealing with contamination of their ground water supply may be 30 ro 40 times more costly than preventing it in the first place. The wellhead protection program is designed under the Safe Drinking Water Act (Section 1428) to prevent contamination from entering the ground waters supplying public water wells.
