Water Commission Seeks Help Shaping the Future of New Hampshire's Water
New Hampshire Water Sustainability Commission Seeks Public Input Through July 31, 2012

Concord, NH - The New Hampshire Water Sustainability Commission is seeking feedback via a written public comment period regarding how New Hampshire residents envision managing the water challenges faced by New Hampshire over the next 25 years. The Commission will be using this information, along with reports from other public engagement opportunities, to develop recommendations for what must be accomplished to ensure clean, plentiful and affordable water in the state. Comments may be submitted to the Water Sustainability Commission via the following link until July 31, 2012:

The New Hampshire Water Sustainability Commission is dedicated to identifying strategies and sustainable management measures to ensure that the quality and quantity of New Hampshire's water resources are as good in the future as, or better than, they are today.  To help accomplish this, the Commission is seeking to build an informed and engaged public to assist in this effort.

Public comments will be considered for inclusion in the final report of the Commission's work, which will be submitted to the Governor in September 2012.

The Commission was established by Governor John Lynch through Executive Order 2011-2 Adobe Acrobat Reader Symbol in April 2011. One of its goals is to secure the place of water and water-related issues as a priority to be addressed by future Governors and legislative sessions along with community leaders from all sectors of New Hampshire life. The Commission provides access to their work and information about water-related concerns in the state through the hosting of an up-to-date website, the creation of an email address where the public can reach the Commission directly with questions or comments, and the offering of several statewide conversations centering around New Hampshire water issues. All Commission meetings are open to the public; meeting times and minutes from past meetings are posted on their website.
