Help protect city’s drinking water

News Journal

WILMINGTON — The City of Wilmington Water Department has launched a source water protection program to help ensure its residents continue to have viable sources of clean drinking water.

The first step in this program is to create a plan to determine the best ways to prevent contaminants from entering the water supply. The city invites volunteers from the community to participate in the development and execution of the plan.

Wilmington utilizes Caesar Creek Lake and Cowan Creek for its water sources. Stakeholders will work to identify factors threatening water quality, develop strategies to address water quality concerns and collaborate on projects that work to improve water quality in both water bodies.

Those interested in participating are invited to attend a kick-off meeting from 10-11 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 21 in the Wilmington Municipal Building Community Room at 69 N. South St.
