Beginning in early 2008, New Hampshire received assistance from a team of national experts to identify opportunities to align existing land conservation, land management, and land use/development programs with water resource protection objectives, particularly protection of drinking water sources.
After a year of research and discovery, the national team of conservation, smart growth and drinking water experts identified ten key action strategies (see “Action Plan” below) that the State of New Hampshire could take to improve efforts to protect the state’s drinking water supplies.
State of New Hampshire Action Plan (May 2009) The recommended ten action items fall into four opportunity areas that address regulatory incentives, conservation funding, access to important data and communication tools, and smart growth planning and development.
