Talk: New Hampshire Lives on Water - Planning for Our Future
Presenter: John Gilbert - Chair, NH Water Sustainability Commission
Sponsor: Center for the Environment

Take a minute to think about how water in the environment - our streams, lakes, wetlands, estuaries - makes New Hampshire a beautiful place to live, and contributes to our top ranking in terms of overall quality of life. Think about how our natural environment and our water infrastructure such as water supply systems make this a great place to raise families. Think about the role of water in tourism, the second largest sector of the N.H. economy. Finally, think about how all of these factors contribute to the N.H. advantage in terms of attracting employers and the educated workforce that today’s growth industries want to attract. In all of these ways, New Hampshire Lives on Water

Please join John Gilbert as he discusses the NH Water Commission’s work and its purpose to collaborate on investments, management policies, practices and tools that ensure clean, plentiful and affordable water that meets both societal and ecological needs while protecting water for future generations.
