Protecting our region's drinking water sources - some of the safest and most dependable in the nation - is of critical importance to water providers and the public.

Consortium members take great care to protect the region’s drinking water sources so that they remain safe and plentiful today, and for future generations. The Consortium is an active advocate for protection of the region’s drinking water sources by supporting and promoting legislation and rule making that improve water quality and watershed protections. Consortium members participate in regional and state-wide committees to ensure that regional water quality needs are being met.
