Wellhead/Source Water Protection and How It Interfaces with Watershed/Non Point Source Management Plans

While the goals of Source Water/Wellhead Protection appear to be more limited to drinking water uses, and watershed planning has broader interests, there is a fairly large overlap in the areas where actions have been taken in the State of Indiana. Unfortunately, these two programs have traditionally operated in isolation and have proceeded (as in other states) primarily along divergent paths. Angie Brown and Connie Cousins-Leatherman, both of IDEM, have found that concerns for drinking water often fuel public interest in watersheds and interest in watershed efforts often boost wellhead protection team participation. Other areas of potential positive and negative impacts will be discussed during this webinar, along with several suggestions for further collaboration
