Water Management Goal 3: maintain & improve the quality of the region’s water bodies and supply sources

222

High-quality fresh water is one of the many natural features that enhance the region’s landscape. It provides habitat to a wide variety of aquatic species, and millions of visitors are attracted to the region each year to fish, swim, paddle, and enjoy the beautiful vistas provided by its lakes and rivers (Visit Adirondacks 2013). In addition, private wells and public systems rely on the region’s aquifers and reservoirs as their supply source. Watershed management and best management practices should be employed to prevent future impairments (reduce agricultural and road runoff, improve stream buffers, etc.) and to improve those water bodies already impaired.
