Wellhead Protection Plan

Wellhead protection is a way to prevent drinking water from becoming polluted by managing potential sources of contamination in the area which supplies water to a public well.

Much can be done to prevent pollution, such as the wise use of land and chemicals. Public health is protected and expense of treating polluted water or drilling new wells is avoided though wellhead protection efforts.

The Joint Powers Water Board​ has created a two-part Wellhead Protection Plan. Part I includes the delineation of the wellhead protection area and drinking water supply management area, as well as an assessment of the wells’ vulnerability. Part II includes the creation of the wellhead protection plan itself, including goals, objectives, plan of action, evaluation program and contingency plan.
