NEIWPCC is a regional commission that helps the states of the Northeast preserve and advance water quality. We engage and convene water quality professionals and other interested parties from New England and New York to collaborate on water, wastewater, and environmental science challenges across the regions, ecosystems, and areas of expertise.
The primary goal of the next generation of Source Water Protection in New York State is to develop and implement source water protection measures for public water systems throughout the State. Source water protection strategies are most effective when implemented at the local community level. As such, NEIWPCC professionals will team with staff from NYSDOH.
