Due by February 15, 2019: New York State is launching an initiative to provide municipalities with resources and tools to proactively protect their drinking water sources. The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and Department of Health (DOH), in consultation with the Department of State (DOS) and Department of Agriculture and Markets (DAM), are building a comprehensive, statewide, sustainable Drinking Water Source Protection Program (DWSP2). The goal is to help municipalities develop and implement a drinking water source protection plan for the source of their drinking water. The State will assist municipalities with understanding the risks to their drinking water sources and what protection actions might be appropriate.
