Source protection is done on a watershed basis. It is the best way to manage water as it flows across the watershed and crosses forests, farmlands, towns and cities. Along the way it is affected by many different activities - some good and some bad.
The role of NDCA is to coordinate source protection on a watershed basis, establish and support a multi-stakeholder source protection committee and co-ordinate the development of the source water protection plan. The NDCA will work with the municipality, local stakeholders and the community, to provide technical expertise, administrative support and advice for plan development.
