Virtual Water User & Provider Forum; Upper Oconee Sub-Basin Water
February 4 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 amFree
Healthy, well-managed forests lead to safe and reliable drinking water, less water treatment, and less energy and chemicals used in drinking water treatment process. By paying forest landowners for these water cleaning services (or, ecosystem services), water users and providers can exponentially reduce their costs. So, what is the best mechanism, or structure, for an ecosystem services market?
We are identifying the ecosystem services market structures that work for water users and providers. Join this virtual forum for the opportunity to help develop and influence the most cost-effective practices to ensure the quality and quantity of your water supplies.
- Identify preferred conservation mechanisms
- Gather feedback from landowners and water providers
- Develop program and engagement recommendations
