The Framework for the Sustainable Water Management Initiative

Thursday, February 7, 2013 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


Providing an adequate water supply is essential to public health and economic development. Withdrawing water to satisfy that demand can shrink stream flows, degrading aquatic habitats and natural fish populations. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts’s Sustainable Water Management Initiative (SWMI) was created in 2010 and its purpose is to manage the water in the Commonwealth so that there is enough for the many and sometimes competing long-term water needs of our communities and our aquatic ecosystems.

The SWMI Framework sets out the principles and the process through which MassDEP plans to revise the Water Management Act regulations in order to balance the competing demands on this limited, vital resource.
