Annotation: This guide is intended for water providers and community members interested in learning more about regulatory and non-regulatory measures to protect water quality. The guide outlines how oil and gas development could impact water quality, particularly the "source water" of our drinking water supplies. The focus of the report is how water providers and local governments can work with regulators and the oil/gas industry to negate potential impacts from oil and gas development to drinking water sources.
