This Water Forum addresses current regional water issues that threaten or negatively impact the health and presence of local water resources, and especially the ecosystems that provide that water.

Possible solutions and choices are presented as we reflect on what we can do as a community to assure the purity of the regional water supply, by respecting and protecting the viability of the natural ecosystems that provide the water upon which all life depends. The Rights of Nature approach is one effective way to prevent degradation, abuse and misuse of water.
