Enabling Source Water Protection: State of New Hampshire Action Plan

After a year of research and discovery, a national team of conservation, smart growth and drinking water experts identified ten key action strategies that the State of New Hampshire could take to improve efforts to protect the state’s drinking water supplies. Building upon the state’s current programs and policies, the national partnership focused primarily on how the state could support better land use decision-making at local levels. Strategies include providing local governments with access to critical information and technical assistance, clear direction on regulatory matters, and improving communication channels across watersheds and regions.
