Source Water Assessment

 

A Source Water Assessment is an evaluation of a drinking water source to determine the "possible contaminating activities" (PCAs) to which the source is most vulnerable. PCAs are current or historic human activities that use, store, produce, or dispose of chemicals that have the potential to contaminate drinking water supplies.

The Assessment includes: a deliniation of protection zones around the source; an inventory of the types of PCAs within the source protection zones; and an analysis to determine the PCAs to which the source is most vulnerable. The information is compiled into a report that includes maps, calculations, checklists, and a summary of the findings/
