Protecting our water resources is essential for community prosperity. Reports indicate that the contamination to Charleston, WV’s drinking water supply in January 2014, resulted in over $60 million of negative economic impact.

The Eastern Panhandle Planning and Development Council (Region 9 ) invited West Virginia’s communities, local governments, and businesses to attend leadership training in source water protection.

This workshop, conducted by expert facilitators from the Environmental Finance Centers at University of Maryland and Dominican University of California, incorporated examples, stories and tools that:

  • Provided the skills to understand and better manage interactions with staff, board and/or the community,
  • Introduced tools to help reduce conflict and plan for the future, and
  • Improved participant’s ability to turn dry numbers into a compelling story and message.
