Thirty national organizations have united to protect America’s drinking water at the source – in the lakes, rivers, streams and aquifers we tap for drinking purposes. The Source Water Collaborative (SWC) was originally formed in 2006 with the goal to combine the strengths and tools of a diverse set of member organizations to act now, and protect drinking water sources for generations to come.
Message from Co-Chairs
Lynn Thorp, Clean Water Action
Deirdre White, Association of State Drinking Water Administrators
As your new co-chairs, we are committed to the power of our diverse collaboration, to making sure we are always engaging, reinvigorating, making progress protecting drinking water sources, and making sure more key audiences see source water protection as a crucial and exciting thing.
We are excited for the 50th Anniversary of the Clean Water Act in 2022 to leverage the momentum and highlight how the provisions in the Act can create opportunities to protect both surface water and groundwater sources of drinking water.
We have lots of great tools and resources. Let’s share them to enhance source water protection collaboration efforts with many diverse partners at the national, state, and local levels across the whole country.
Together we can reach thousands of people!
