Across New Hampshire: A time to talk water

Let’s talk about water. “We need to hear from you,” said John Gilbert, chairman of New Hampshire’s Water Sustainability Commission.

“Please join us for an evening that is designed with the general public in mind. The meetings will consist of small group conversations, not presentations by talking heads.”

  • What about water is important to you?
  • What are you concerned about?
  • In what direction should New Hampshire be heading with respect to water resources and infrastructure?

On May 8, 2012, the Commission will hold a statewide conversation on the subject of water at five sites around the state: New London, Keene, Manchester, Greenland and Berlin.

The Water Sustainability Commission, created in April 2011 to address the sustainable management of water resources and water infrastructure in the Granite State, is expected to report to the Governor by September 2012.

“The decisions we make or fail to make about water sustainability in the next few years will shape our futures and those of our children,” wrote Gilbert in an e-news announcement from NH-DES (Department of Environmental Services).

The meeting in New London will be held at Tracy Library, 6-9 p.m.

New Hampshire Listens, a project of the Carsey Institute at the University of New Hampshire, will facilitate the conversation.

Pre-registration required.
