Clean and Abundant Water Matters Forum When: Tuesday, October 24, 2017 at 10 am
Where: Marston Hall at Christchurch School in Middlesex County, VA
The Garden Clubs of The Northern Neck and The Middle Peninsula, which are member clubs of the Garden Club of Virginia, will sponsor a conservation forum for the education of our public related to preserving one of the precious natural resources of our state, water. Mr. Lewis Lawrence, Executive Director of the Middle Peninsula Planning Commission, will emphasize the significance which our state has enacted to:
ensure that adequate and safe drinking water is available to all citizens of the Commonwealth
encourage, promote, and protect all other beneficial uses of the Commonwealth's water resources, and
encourage, promote, and develop incentives for alternative water sources.
In 2003, the state of Virginia initiated the development of a comprehensive water supply planning process to ensure that each local within the state addressed this issue. The presentation will discuss how the state planning process will work and how public concerns can be voiced during the update.
The Garden Club of the Northern Neck and The Garden Club of the Middle Peninsula have partnered for several years to bring statewide conservation issues to our locale. Our citizens and students have attended these conservation forums, which seek to deepen their understanding and awareness of conservation issues and how their lives maybe impacted by individual, organizational and governmental decision making processes. Please join us for this free educational forum.
