Hampton Roads Regional Source Water Protection Plan 

Hampton Roads municipal water utilities are committed to protecting the region’s drinking water sources. This document, the Hampton Roads Regional Source Water Protection Plan, summarizes risks to municipal source water quality, existing regional source water protection measures, and potential protection and management strategies for future implementation.

The plan included partnering with the Virginia Health Department to identify potential sources of contamination to drinking water sources. The GIS maps of potential sources of contamination were distributed to all utilities in Hampton Roads. They continue to be updated and refined. Please contact the Water Resources department for more information about the available data.
