Montgomery County, MD Green Infrastructure Plan
This website displays the Green Infrastructure Functional Master Plan with the following goals: Provide a policy guide for development and zoning decisions; help guide master plans; provide a planning tool to help improve water quality; realize forest protection goals; increase the potential for state funding of open space preservation; and support the desired development pattern identified in the county's General Plan and facilitate smart growth.


Montgomery County, MD Special Protection Areas for Streams
The streams in Montgomery County, including those found in parkland, on private property, or elsewhere in the neighborhood, are an important part of the natural resources of the county. A healthy stream provides recreational, natural, and aesthetic benefits. Over 1500 miles of streams in Montgomery County provide habitat to our rich and diverse aquatic life and water-dependent wild life. A healthy stream contributes to good drinking water and helps protect the Chesapeake Bay.


Montgomery County, MD Water Resources Plan
This report contains the text of the draft Water Resources Functional Plan (WRFP) for the Physical Development of the Maryland-Washington Regional District in Montgomery and Prince George's Counties.


New EPA Website to Help Small Communities with Wastewater Needs
On September 19, 2007 EPA launched a new Website to help small communities achieve and maintain sustainable wastewater services. This new site provides information about grants, funding resources, technical assistance and training.  A variety of tools is also available on this website to help small communities plan, design, build, and maintain their wastewater infrastructure.

River Network Report - The Carbon Footprint of Water

The Carbon Footprint of Water explores the energy and carbon emissions embedded in the nationís water supplies. In this report, River Network has developed a baseline estimate of water-related energy use in the United States, as well as a comparative overview of the energy embedded in different water supplies and end-uses. The report also includes numerous examples of how water management strategies can protect our freshwater resources while reducing energy and carbon emissions.

 

 



Source Water Protection in Rural America - Joe Burns

Southeast and Tennessee Watershed Roundtable Presentation, 2004

Protecting rural water supplies either surface water or groundwater is challenging and rewarding when it happens. This presentation will characterize how successful protection measures have been implemented despite the common obstacles to protection. Case studies will demonstrate how local stakeholders through BMPís, cost share programs, legal disputes and sheer determination have protected two rural communities in Kentucky.

U.S. Water Usage Statistics by County and Watershed (USGS)

The U.S. Geological Survey maintains national digital data bases of water-use information. The data are collected and compiled every five years for each State, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.



UK Report Connects Carbon Effects to Water Savings

From River Network (Author: Bevan Griffiths-Sattenspiel) A new report released yesterday in the UK by the Environment Agency and the Energy Saving Trust explores the energy and carbon embedded in residential water use. Titled Quantifying the Energy and Carbon Effects of Water Saving, the report concludes, among other things that 6% of the UK's carbon emissions are related to water and that Britons could save 30% of the carbon emissions from heating water through some simple retrofits.  Click here to read more.

 



USGS National Water Information System

These pages provide access to water-resources data collected at approximately 1.5 million sites in all 50 States, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. Online access to this data is organized around the categories listed to the left.

The USGS investigates the occurrence, quantity, quality, distribution, and movement of surface and underground waters and disseminates the data to the public, State and local governments, public and private utilities, and other Federal agencies involved with managing our water resources.



Water and My Community: How Smart Growth Can Reduce the Cost and Challenge of Water Delivery - Paula VanLare

Southeast and Tennessee Watershed Roundtable Presentation, 2004

The choices we make about how and where to grow have a direct impact on the cost and availability of water. Development patterns have a very real impact on communitiesí ability to respond to these challenges. Understanding the connection between development choices and their impacts on water can help communities adopt an approach to growth that reduces both overall demand for the limited supply of water, and the absolute cost of water provision through lower investment expenditure and less leakage.
