Concord Public Works is working to better protect groundwater and surface water resources by conducting regular inspections of the watershed areas, educating residents and property owners about watershed protection, monitoring the progress of release sites located in the resource protection areas, working with farmers to practice Best Management Practices (BMPs), and implementing an enhanced emergency response plan.
Residents can help protect drinking water resources by
Practicing good septic system practices.
Supporting water supply protection initiatives at the local and state level.
Taking hazardous household chemicals to proper hazardous materials collection facilities.
Limiting the use of pesticides and fertilizer.
Be mindful of what you put down your sink and your storm drain.
These are small steps that customers can do to help us in protecting the drinking water resources we have in Concord.
