Strategy RC8.2: Promote and expand existing water quality and conservation education campaigns.
Continued support for existing water quality and water conservation education programs is necessary. Reducing point and non-point source pollution is critical to maintaining a high quality of life. Reducing per capita water usage will become more important as well. Example programs include:
- Initiate a Trout in the Classroom program.
- Establish an annual French Broad Stewardship Award.
- Build on the Friends of the River Award that recognizes developments that incorporate exemplary low-impact development practices that protect or improve water quality in the French Broad river basin.
