The Kentucky Division of Water (DOW) is making funding available for source water protection projects through the Source Water Protection Assistance Program (SWPAP). Protecting source water is a common-sense approach to safeguarding public health by protecting drinking water supplies. The SWPAP is designed to provide communities with up to $60,000 to develop and implement projects within a one-year time frame to protect public drinking water sources.
Eligible activities include projects that lead to a reduced risk of degradation or contamination of the drinking water source and could include identification, removal, or management of contaminant sources; source area security measures; and public education and outreach.
