Source Water Assessment Program (SWAP)

Funded by: MDEQ grant
Project Manager: Kurt Thompson


AWRI continues its fourth year as a participant in Michigan's Source Water Assessment Program (SWAP). The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality Drinking Water and Radiological Protection Division (MDEQ-DWRPD) administers the program with assistance from Michigan State University's Institute of Water Research (MSU-IWR). AWRI continues to provide technical assistance to 6 local health departments serving 16 countries. In addition to the collection of critical information used in understanding the vulnerability of Type II non-community wells to surface contamination, AWRI researchers will be creating a vulnerability assessment map for each county in its assigned regions.
