The Building Blocks of Watershed Sustainability
The Building Blocks of our watershed may be summarized in three key spheres: our environment, our society and our economy.
Our environment- this watershed, that place we call home- is the foundation upon which our communities and economy rest. A healthy natural environment supports vibrant communities and a viable economy over the long term.
The BRWA's watershed sustainability diagram represents our belief that our communities and economy exist within the natural bounds of our environment.
Our communities are enriched through the many benefits we receive from the land, air, water and biodiversity of our watershed.
Our local economy is built and sustained through the use of our watershed's natural and social capital: the resources our watershed provides and the people who live, work, and play here.
