Source Water Protection

Protecting our source of drinking water, the Pend d’Oreille River, from contamination is a voluntary effort.  Recognizing water as the City’s most important asset, the City of Dover, in collaboration with Idaho Rural Water Association (IRWA), began developing a Source Water Protection Plan (SWPP) in 2012. 

Beginning in 2012, the city worked on numerous outreach projects to include development of a riparian buffer along the city shore line, distribution of a landowner’s guidebook outlining best management practices for source water protection, local radio announcements on key topics, signage stating “Drinking Water Protection Area”, Doggie Do stations placed along the trails and city park, and the most recent program implementing the septic tank inspection and pumping schedule.

The City of Dover’s SWPP has been recently updated and is currently being reviewed by the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (IDEQ). The plan will be posted here, once IDEQ’s review is completed.
