67 Years Working for Clean Water: 1947 through 2014

Water Resource Protection | Climate Change

 

Introduction

NEIWPCC member states have identified climate change, specifically the threats posed by climate change to water resources in the Northeast, as a cross-programmatic priority.  Because past and current greenhouse gas emissions have committed the region and the nation to some level of climate change over the next several decades we must as decision-makers deal with the consequences.  Informed policies and actions are necessary to not only reduce emissions but to adapt to the consequences of past and present conditions.  NEIWPCC will track this issue and keep our member states apprised of all relevant developments.
