Source Water Protection Award Presentation

DOVER AWARDED SOURCE WATER PROTECTION SYSTEM OF THE YEAR

Idaho Rural Water Association has awarded the City of Dover the Source Water Protection System of the Year award. The City of Dover has proven to the State that they are actively pursuing measures to protect the public’s drinking water.  Dover’s municipal drinking water is taken from the Pend O’0reille River, making the river the “source” of the City’s drinking water. Keeping the water intake free from turbidity and hazardous wastes such as gasoline, oil, toxic substances and leaching septic tanks are primary goals of the Source Water Protection Plan.  Bonner Soil and Water Conservation District helped the City of Dover with a grant to implement their Source Water Protection Plan. The plan was developed with assistance from IDEQ, IRWA and executed with significant time and effort from Councilwomen Peggy Burge and Denise Travis. In 2014, Councilwoman Diane Brockway updated the plan, with assistance from IRWA and IDEQ, and submitted the final version resulting in a State Certified Plan. The plan will continue to guide the city to ensure a safe source of public drinking water. The completed plan may be viewed on the city’s official website: cityofdoveridaho.gov.
