Protecting Water Resources with Smart Growth, a new report from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), presents 75 innovative approaches to help protect water resources and achieve smart growth. Growth and development, including the loss of woodlands, meadowlands, and wetlands, can have adverse effects on water resources. The report documents smarter approaches to growth with policies and tools that enhance existing neighborhoods, improve schools, protect drinking water, and provide attractive housing and transportation choices. For more on innovative techniques for smart growth and to download the full report, go to the Environmental Protection Agency website.
