Create a Public Service Announcement
Creating a public service announcement (PSA) to air on local channels is an effective way to spread the word about source water protection. Consider working with neighboring communities that may draw from the same water source as you to raise funding. If you are a surface water system, present the idea to communities up and down stream.
Creating a PSA is easier than you may think. Click on the links below to view PSAs that have aired in Idaho, and learn about the benefits and methods of creating one.
