Drinking Water - Human and Livestock Health

This initiative focuses on developing, promoting the use of, and evaluating collaborative Extension-outreach programs, educational tools, and resources addressing human and livestock drinking water quality, irrigation water suitability, and functionality and maintenance of on-site septic systems; foster adoption of monitoring and management practices that improve human and livestock drinking water quality, minimize exposure of humans, livestock, and agricultural soils to waters of impaired quality, and reduce undesirable interactions between private drinking water supplies and domestic wastewater treatment systems.
