Below are map images of several source water assessment maps and a key. A separate map has been created for each ground water and surface water susceptibility model. The key describes the symbols used on all of the sourcewater assessment maps.\r\n\r\nIn the case of ground water, there are seven source water assessment maps,one for each of the contaminant categories: pathogens, nutrients, pesticides,volatile organic compounds (VOCs), inorganics, radionuclides/radon, anddisinfection byproduct precursors (DBPs).\r\n\r\nFor surface water, five source water assessment maps were developed:nutrients, pesticides, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), inorganics, and disinfection by product precursors (DBPs). As a result of not developing apathogen or radionuclide susceptibility model for surface water, maps were notcreated for these contaminant categories.\r\n\r\nThe source water assessment maps illustrate the source water assessment areaand the potential contaminant sources used in determining a source’ssusceptibility. Only the intensity explanatory variables are illustrated. Forexample, for the Nutrient Surface Water Susceptibility Model map, 1995 land use(agricultural and urban) and sewage treatment plants are shown.\r\n\r\nThe source water assessment maps show the potential sources of contaminationthat are within and outside of the source water assessment area. DEP decided toinclude the potential contaminant sources outside of the source waterassessment area because there may be mapping inaccuracies. Includingpotential contaminant sources outside of the assessment area will illustrate thosesites that fall within a close proximity to the assessment area and provideadditional information. The Geographic Information System datasets wereobtained from the appropriate DEP programs.\r\n\r\nNOTE: The sites in the maps were not labeled. See key below for reference.
