Source Water Environmental Education Teams – SWEET!
An active network of Source Water Environmental Education Teams (SWEETs) is providing Ohioans with source water education and guidance about protecting their sources of drinking water.
Each team is organized by county soil and water conservation district educator staff and consists of several local water resource partners. Most teams are equipped with the following user-friendly teaching aids:
- ground water simulator model
- EnviroScape Drinking Water
- EnviroScape Waste Water Treatmnet model
- drinking water source assessment reports
- protection area maps
In 2005, staff from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Soil and Water Conservation and the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency Division of Drinking and Ground Waters partnered to establish this network, which currently includes 54 teams serving 58 counties.
