Event Description

In partnership with Michigan State University’s Institute of Water Research, Michigan Rural Water Association and community partners, the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) will host the 2022 Source Water Protection Conference in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan.

For decades, Michigan has supported and encouraged the development and implementation of SWP plans at the local level to protect public drinking water supplies from potential sources of contamination. Michigan has thousands of water supplies that provide drinking water to the public. Uncontaminated source water is the critical first step in supplying safe drinking water. This program and the plans created under it are a key mechanism with seven fundamental elements to help communities implement a source water management strategy, evaluate the risks to their source water, develop contingency plans for their supplies, and educate the public about the importance of source water protection. Additionally, EGLE offers grant assistance with matching funds to communities annually to support the development, implementation, and updating of SWP plans.

This conference is intended to help communities design and implement successful SWP programs. Participants may include community members hoping to begin a new SWP program or update an existing plan, or anyone interested in supporting local drinking water protection activities. Participants may include community water supply personnel, local officials, community representatives, local, state, and federal partners, academia, consultants, service providers, and those with an interest in source water protection.

Join fellow local leaders to discuss climate- and energy-related issues that face our communities and share solutions to those issues.
