The Value of Water

Water is a precious resource and a crucial part of our community's quality of life.

An adequate supply of safe, quality drinking water and the proper collection and treatment of wastewater are essential for:

  • the public health and safety (including fire protection);
  • protecting local and regional water resources;
  • support of our local economy and employment;
  • support of the public, private and non-profit services (businesses, schools, health care facilities, other public institutions); and
  • public recreation including aquatics.
