Clean Drinking Water Starts Upstream Workshops
In 2018, EPA sponsored a series of watershed workshops with land practitioners like the conservation district, salmon restoration entities, Tribal staff, Forest Service, county staff, and drinking water utilities from targeted watersheds. They discussed collaborative opportunities to improve water quality for drinking water and fish in watersheds. In addition to presentations and group discussion, each workshop included a tour of a water treatment plant in order to introduce land practitioners to the complex processes of making safe water. A funding matrix for source water protection was developed to help utilities and practitioners identify restoration and source water protection funding sources. Workshop material is available below.
