Since 2004, the NC Source Water Assessment & Protection (SWAP) Program has assessed the potential for contamination for all the state’s public drinking water sources. The resulting assessment reports are available online and provide information that enables local groups to identify, prioritize and initiate activities to help protect their drinking water.

The technical methodology used to prepare the SWAP assessments was developed over a decade ago and can be reviewed in detail at the SWAP program page. Although the fundamental approach to SWAP remains relevant, advances in GIS technology and data availability may provide an opportunity to improve the content and delivery of SWAP information. As such, the Drinking Water Protection team has reestablished an advisory committee to provide recommendations as we identify potential SWAP improvements.

This webpage contains information and reference documents related to our efforts to improve SWAP.
Any comments or questions should be directed to Cy Stober, SWAP Program Manager (cy.stober@ncdenr.gov - 919-707-9070).
