A ready supply of clean water is essential to grow and sustain communities, industry, and agriculture. In addition to the need to ensure and protect adequate water supplies for human activities, it is necessary to protect instream flows and groundwater reserves to preserve the environmental services, such as wasteload assimilation, as well as support environmentally based economic activities such as fishing and boating. Economic development is dependent on the availability of water, and protecting and wisely using the limited supplies in the state is important for future growth.
