The Source Water Collaborative (SWC) has just published a “Call to Action” that ASDWA helped to develop. This document includes a future vision in which “All drinking water sources are adequately protected,” along with key actions for state, federal, and local partners to: update and improve source water assessments and protection plans; protect drinking water sources and work with key partners; and implement rapid emergency notification and response procedures. Please note that this was a “soft launch” of the Call to Action paper, to coincide with the 40th Anniversary of the Safe Drinking Water Act Celebratory Event that was held last week. The SWC’s full promotion of the Call to Action is planned for early 2015. To accompany the attached 4-pager, the full promotion will also feature a companion document that includes informational resources and tools for SWC organizations and their members to facilitate the proposed actions.
