DARTMOUTH'S WATER USE
Fresh water has been an abundant and therefore fairly inexpensive resource in our region. Climate change will brings us more abundant water, but it will come in new ways, mostly in high intensity storms. We anticipate that one effect of this is that costs of water treatment and distribution will rise as these systems are impacted by new patterns. At Dartmouth, we have an opportunity to think about this proactively and we have begun to sharpen our focus on our relationship with water. By understanding how and where we use water, we will develop goals that enable us to develop a resilient water system.
