Welcome to the resources page of the SWPA Water Network website. This page is dedicated to providing a comprehensive list of resources related to sustainable water management practices and water-related issues in the Upper Ohio River Basin. Our goal is to provide a one-stop-shop for individuals, organizations, and communities looking to learn more about water management, best practices, and policies in the region.

Here you will find a variety of resources, including reports, research papers, case studies, webinars, and training materials. We have compiled these resources from a wide range of sources, including government agencies, academic institutions, nonprofit organizations, and industry groups. Our hope is that these resources will be useful for a diverse group of stakeholders, including water resource managers, policymakers, community leaders, educators, and concerned citizens. We will continue to update and expand this page as new resources become available, so be sure to check back often.
