The West Wilson Utility District is responsible for delivering safe and dependable water to consumers.  Safe and dependable water is essential to sustaining the health, safety and general welfare of our community and the protection of our drinking water sources is critical to both the community and the water providers serving our community.  Ground and surface water sources are vulnerable to a variety of contaminants from a variety of activities within our water supply watersheds.  These activities include residential, commercial, industrial and other urban development, agriculture, forestry, mining, wildlife, and public access.

Source Water Protection helps to prevent the pollution of the lakes, rivers, streams, springs and ground water that serve as sources of drinking water and helps guide the process of managing activities in watersheds that can minimize adverse effects on water quality.  Source Water Protection also can generate savings by avoiding costs of additional water treatment or cleanup, supply replacement and damage associated with contaminated source water.

Source Water Protection requires the special attention of the entire community, its governments, residents, business and industry.  We all need to be committed to pollution prevention within watersheds, to continual improvement in addressing Source Water Protection needs and to actions that meet or exceed Federal and State Source Water Protection requirements, and to build awareness of drinking water sources.
