Rogue Drinking Water Partnership

We are a critical partner in the Rogue Drinking Water Partnership (RDWP), a collaborative partnership of local drinking water providers and organizations focused on protecting drinking water and source water.

This collaborative partnership has one main goal: to protect drinking water quality for the Rogue Basin community.

Current Partnership Initiatives:


Developing an Action Plan

An action plan is being written to identify short- and long-term high priority measures for protecting drinking water across the basin. This plan will include methods to protect water quality, support the creation of educational materials, and provide resources and financial support to enact the plan.


Developing a Geographic Response Plan

The plan will outline strategies and locations for protecting critical resources (e.g., drinking water intakes).  Resources will be protected by diversion, isolating/protecting critical resources, containing spills, skimming, and other methods.

Funding for the plan is provided by an Oregon Health Authority Grant.


Education & Outreach

Through social media, the website, and written materials, we aim to provide the public with fun and educational ways to learn about drinking water. Look forward to special efforts during Source Water Protection Week and 

National Drinking Water Week.
