AbstractIn general, local authorities are responsible for the quality of water distributed to the population. They must ensure that this water is always fit for consumption. It is easier to supply the public with water of a satisfactory quality if you are sure that the resources used are, at the outset, free from pollution. One of the requirements for maintaining the natural quality of water sources is to engage in a pro-active policy of protection of water sources. The difficulties encountered when establishing protection zones are very similar from one country to another; they may be technical administrative or financial. The aim of this document is to provide practical guidance which will make it easier to establish such protection zones
