Source Water Protection

The Integrated Source Water Protection Program is a comprehensive voluntary approach to help communities develop and implement a plan that protects their public drinking water supplies.

The Nevada Division of Environmental Protection (NDEP) has contracted with us, Resource Concepts, Inc. (RCI), to provide technical assistance at no charge to Nevada communities (2012 through 2020).

For more information on the program please click on the State of Nevada link below or contact Jill Sutherland, RCI Project Manager at 775-883-1600 or jill@rci-nv.com.
