Source water protection in the Potomac basin

Safeguarding your drinking water

Millions of people living in the Potomac River basin are provided with safe drinking water every day. Meeting emerging challenges and ensuring a reliable supply for the future, requires vigilance and cooperation. By undertaking a collaborative approach, the unique Potomac River Basin Drinking Water Source Protection Partnership (DWSPP) – over two dozen water suppliers and government agencies – helps to ensure that people’s most basic need for clean, safe and abundant water is reliably met.
