Source Water Protection

The Glacial Lakes Sanitary Sewer & Water District (GLSSWD) obtains its drinking water from an underground aquifer. To protect its drinking water source, the GLSSWD is in the process of developing a wellhead protection plan. The developed plan, when implemented, will clearly identify the GLSSWD wellhead protection area, any potential contamination sources, and outline management strategies to help insure the continued safety and quality of the source water.
