A wellhead protection plan must have measurable objectives for the well and drinking water supply management area.
A wellhead protection plan must state a plan of action. A plan of action must:
address the problems and opportunities identified in the wellhead protection plan;
identify and prioritize the wellhead protection measures that will be used;
identify proposed changes in well construction, maintenance, and use; and
identify a time frame for the implementation of the action identified in the plan.
A public water supplier must establish priorities in the plan of action that:
any substance that exceeds the maximum contaminant level specified in Code of Federal Regulations, title 40, part 141 (1995 and as subsequently amended); and
a quantifiable level of a contaminant in the well water resulting from human activity; and
the number of each potential contaminant source identified and the nature of the potential contamination associated with each source;
the location of each potential contaminant source in relation to:
the public water supply well;
the isolation distances; and
a one-year time of travel emergency response time;
the capability of the geologic material to absorb a contaminant;
the effectiveness of existing controls;
the time required to obtain cooperation from other public water suppliers, and local, state, and federal agencies and programs; and
the administrative, legal, technical, and public and private financial resources needed.
A plan of action must:
describe those actions that will be taken by the public water supplier alone;
describe those actions that will require the cooperation of a local unit of government or state and federal agencies; and
state whether the public water supplier has received commitments for the cooperation described in item B.
