Livable Communities and Water Fact Sheet
The compact, mixed-use, walkable development that is encouraged by the Livable Communities / Smart Growth movement turns out to be a perfect fit when it comes to planning for future water supplies. This fact sheet (PDF, 1.8 MB) explains for elected officials the surprising links between livable communities and water – and the many benefits of acting on them.
Correction: In the “Economic Implications” section of this fact sheet, National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) was incorrectly referred to as Non-Point Discharge Elimination System. This has been corrected.
