Drawing of land and water

Water Resources

Municipal Action for Clean Water

Municipal plans and ordinances that control the way land is developed can protect water resources and prevent water pollution. Careful site development can prevent increases in stormwater runoff and reduce the potential for erosion and sedimentation problems for our waterways.

Prohibiting disturbance of land adjacent to streams can prevent erosions and loss of important filtration functions. Protection of these areas to prevent pollution is far more economic than paying for treatment of polluted water. Strong septic system requirements help protect both groundwater and surface water.

Plans and Preparation
