Formulating a Water Resources Management and Protection Plan

Description: Development of a water plan requires a municipality to inventory its water resources, and to analyze the demands and threats to those resources. These may be defined in terms of threats to water quality from pollutants; the need for public/private water supplies; and demands from competing water uses, such as recreation, wildlife habitat, hydropower production and fire protection. Once adopted, a water plan becomes an element of the conservation and preservation section of the local master plan. As such, it serves as the scientific and statistical basis for water related regulations.
