Water Management Goal 1: maintain adequate water supply for future needs
Water resources in the North Country are currently generous, and proper management of water resources will allow the region to maintain this supply in the future. However, changing climate conditions may lead to periods of drought, when water is needed most, or flooding, when storage capacity is already at its limits. Proper planning for these conditions will help manage the continued use of this essential resource and reduce the loss of infrastructure and crops. Specific objectives under this goal include maintaining aquatic base flow and natural habitats, maintaining a reliable water supply for residents, and providing the capacity to attract future economic growth in accordance with NCREDC goals.
