Source Water Protection - Part Two  

2 CA Drinking Water Contact Hours awarded.

This course is now offered as an online training. It is recommended to take both parts on the same day.  Part 1 will take place from 10:00am to 12:00pm and Part 2 will take place from 2:00pm to 4:00pm. Please follow the links below to register for each part separately.

Surface water or groundwater can serve as drinking water sources and each has their own treatment requirements for public drinking water supplies. Protecting source water from contamination can reduce treatment costs, saving both time and money. Protecting source water also reduces risks to public health from exposures to contaminated water. Source water assessments provide water utilities, community and others with information needed to protect drinking water sources. Learning how to conduct a source water assessment and implement management measures can prevent, reduce or eliminate risks to your drinking water supply.

Participants will learn:

  • Delineation of source water protection area
  • Inventory of known and potential contamination sources
  • Determine susceptibility of your PWS to contaminant sources
  • Public education about threats identified
  • Management measures for prevention, reduction or elimination of risks
  • Contingency planning for contamination events

The recommended audience includes local government (boards), management and operators.

Certificates for contact hours are available through your profile.

Contact Hours have been approved for the Registered Environmental Health Specialist program.
