Water Management
 Navigating the Regulatory Mix


 “In wine there is wisdom, in beer there is freedom and in water there is bacteria
 
This fun food for thought is frequently misattributed to Benjamin Franklin, but the term bacteria was not commonly used until the early 1800’s, several decades after Franklin’s death.  Despite the confusion over who said this first, we have long known that our water is not always as clean as we need it to be! Where does water management begin and what is the balance between growth and sustainable communities that require clean water?
