Wastewater management is important to enhance the quality of life for all communities and protect the water quality of natural systems. Management Practices were selected to meet the Council’s vision and goals and to address the potential challenges identified in the Regional Water Plan. A prioritization and ranking process was used by the Regional Water Planning Council that resulted in the selection of 4 Administrative and 2 Wastewater Management Practices.
