SOIL AND WATER GOALS

  • Reduce water usage, which conserves water resources and reduces the need to spend energy treating water.

  • Shift a percentage of the existing developed landscape from traditional green lawns and impervious paved surfaces to native plantings, rain gardens, pervious pavement and other “green” landscaping.

  • Understand and anticipate threats to the quality of the region’s water supply.
