Safe Drinking Water for WV Communities
Few things are as important to our lives and well-being as access to clean, safe water.
Following the West Virginia water crisis in 2014, the legislature passed a law requiring most public water systems to have Source Water Protection Plans. These plans identify potential sources of contamination and propose management strategies for preventing those contaminants from impacting our drinking water supplies.
There is growing understanding that water utilities and their community need to work together to keep our drinking water safe. We all need to do our part to keep our waters clean before it reaches a water intake.
That is why West Virginia Rivers created the Safe Water for West Virginia program. It is designed to assist utilities and their communities in working together to keep our drinking water safe.
