The comprehensive Groundwater Management Plan is currently under development. In the interim, the components of the plan are explained below followed by an anticipated timeline for completion of the components.
Education and Outreach
Water Conservation Strategies
Examples include comprehensive irrigation programs as well as strategies for treated wastewater recycling, improved retention pond design, and recharge wells within water retention basins. Here are some simple conservation strategies to implement in and around your home.
Policy Reviews and Updates
Examples include septic code revisions, water/wastewater management programs, municipal hookup policy reviews, new-build policy reviews, and road salt management.
Land Use and Infrastructure Planning
Examples include zoning changes such as increased/decreased lot sizes in “areas of concern” or recharge preservation zones, infrastructure recommendations, and local conservation strategies.
