Draft County Conservation Plan
COMMENT DEADLINE: August 29, 2019

Download: Comprehensive Water Conservation and Implementation Plan

As one of the counties that make up the New York Metropolitan Area, Rockland County has experienced continued population growth over the last decade and regional forecasts predict that the growth trend will continue through 2050. With this increase in population comes an increase in water demand; it is projected that water demand in Rockland County will reach 51.1 mgd by 2050. This trend indicates that current supplies will fall short of forecast demand by 2044.

The County recognizes that water conservation planning is most effective when it addresses the interrelationships among water resources, infrastructure, energy use, land use, public and private water supplies, community values and local governance. This Comprehensive Water Conservation and Implementation Plan (Plan) presents an integrated approach to water conservation that is implementable and cost-effective for the County of Rockland (County), local jurisdictions and potential implementing partners located in the county.
