Proactive water supply planning utilizes demand management strategies to promote the viability of future water supply. The Hampton Roads Region recognizes the importance of demand management and development efforts in water supply planning and also understands that it is crucial for the region to conserve local water resources and minimize both current and future water demands.
Based on the water resource studies, the Hampton Roads Region is pursuing programs and projects to meet long-term needs while providing interim and drought-related solutions. Incorporating water demand management practices both in the long and short term is a necessary component to extend the useful life of the regional water supply.
The Lake Gaston Water Supply Project is one of the most critical long-distance water supply pipeline projects in the region. It brings water from other watersheds and provides high quality, reliable fresh water to the Hampton Roads area. It has a positive and profound effect on the region’s social, environmental, and economic impacts.
