A number of organizations and agencies in Nebraska work to support communities as they develop and adopt wellhead protection (WHP) programs. The Nebraska Wellhead Protection Network (NeWHPN) began in 2001 to provide an opportunity for these organizations and agencies to meet, discuss their work and identify community needs. Meetings are also an opportunity for the group to get information about hot topics related to their field.
The Groundwater Foundation serves as facilitator and record-keeper for the NeWHPN, which is funded by the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality.
