Virtual Meeting

This EBC New Hampshire program will focus on how precipitation patterns are changing in New Hampshire, and what this means for everything that depends on water – which is essentially all human and natural activities – and the different future scenarios that Granite Staters will need to prepare for.

The program will feature the state meteorologist and a climate researcher who will talk about the seasonal shifts occurring in the amounts and types of precipitation being experienced in the Granite State and how these shifts are affecting everything from groundwater recharge to water levels and flooding in the state’s rivers, streams, lakes, and ponds. Another researcher will explore the environmental and social justice implications of these growing challenges. The program will also review how the Water Division at the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services is already thinking about these issues and considering how to start to adjust regulatory and management strategies to better ensure and protect the reliability and safety of the state’s drinking water supplies, dams, and natural, recreational and wildlife resources.

A robust panel discussion with the audience, including consideration of how environmental professionals may be able to help their clients to be prepared for these “What If” scenarios, will conclude the webinar.
