impact statement issue
- Everyone cares about having adequate water supplies of good quality and managing their water resources for beneficial uses. There are many conflicting uses and impacts on water quality, and the fate and transport of contaminants in water is complex. Consequently, there is a great need for sound technical and objective information whereby stakeholders can make the best informed decisions for managing their water resources.
