Wellspring: Source Water Resilience and Climate Adaptation
Source Water Protection (SWP) has always been fundamental to water resources
management. Source waters can deliver reliable and high-quality water services for drinking
and domestic use, livestock and ranching, irrigation, energy, industrial development, and
disaster prevention and recovery. As the pace of climate change quickens, SWP is now also
becoming a critical component to ensuring resilience. Climate change presents a new range
of threats, drivers, and uncertainties in how we interact with freshwater ecosystems, but
recently developed approaches to cope with climate impacts will ensure that source waters
can survive — and thrive — into the future.
