Riverkeeper and the Department of Environmental Conservation will make presentations about Source Water Protection at the next Saw Kill Watershed Community meeting. Source Water Protection refers to watershed protection in areas that are part of public drinking water supplies.

Dan Shapley, Riverkeeper’s Water Quality Program Manager, will discuss the lessons from Newburgh’s drinking water quality crisis, and how other communities can take action utilizing existing state and federal laws to better protect their drinking water supplies.

Elisa Chae of the Hudson River Estuary Program will present about tools and technical advice available for protecting drinking water sources.

The Saw Kill is the drinking water supply for Bard College, and other wells within the watershed supply communities with drinking water.
