Forest-to-Faucet Partnership: University of Massachusetts Amherst/U.S. Forest Service

Source Water Stewardship Project

This project is briefly summarized in Projects and Tools and also in a paper in the Journal of the American Water Works Association (Barten and Ernst 2004). The brief report that follows summarizes the lessons learned through working on the four pilot sites (Georgia, Maryland/Pennsylvania, Massachusetts/New Hampshire, and New Jersey) with a principal focus on the GIS analyses and data availability.
