Major Elements

In general, the Source Water Assessment Programs for West Virginia consists of three major elements:

  1. Delineation of SWPAs -- Area that contributes ground water or surface water to a public water supply system.
  2. Identification of significant potential sources of contamination -- Locating the facilities or land uses within that area that may threaten the water quality.
  3. Susceptibility analysis -- The susceptibility of the systems to contamination.

A copy of the W.V. SWAP approved plan is available on this website.

A Fact Sheet is available about the SWAP program in PDF.  Information on West Virginia Water Conditions is also new and available also in PDF.

For more information about the West Virginia SWAP please contact the West Virginia Bureau for Public Health by calling 304-356-4298, e-mailing  SWAP staff, or writing to:
