New Fact Sheet from LPC Features Longleaf Pine’s Importance to Drinking Water

August 11, 2021 EPA Source Water Map

The Longleaf Partnership Council (LPC) is pleased to announce a new communications fact sheet, Longleaf Pine: A Tall Drink of Water. This informational product showcases how protecting and restoring longleaf pine forests can help keep drinking water safe, reliable, and affordable. The fact sheet also highlights how good stewardship can contribute to drinking water and the benefits for water utilities of investing in longleaf restoration.  

The longleaf and drinking water fact sheet is the fourth in a series of communications documents that demonstrates how longleaf pine can provide certain advantages to landowners. The previous fact sheets featured longleaf pine’s resilience to insects and diseases, advantages during natural disasters, and unique tolerance to fire:

The LPC's sincere gratitude goes out to Lisa Lord of The Longleaf Alliance, Kitty Weisman of the Southeastern Partnership for Forests and Water, and Jeff Lerner of the Healthy Watersheds Consortium for writing and designing this document. Thank you to Jeremy Olson and the St. John’s River Water Management District for highlighting their work to restore longleaf pine. We also appreciate the map highlighting the source water protection areas in the nine southeastern states in the longleaf range contributed by the Environmental Protection Agency.

The LPC is also very thankful to those who reviewed the content and the funding partners at the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, International Paper, USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, USDA Forest Service, the South Carolina Forestry Commission, and the Georgia Forestry Commission.
