Freshwater Resource Management

Freshwater ecosystems include streams and rivers, plus their watersheds and groundwater, as well as ponds and lakes. These waterbodies can be particularly susceptible to human exploitation as well as point and nonpoint pollution and flow changes because of their small size and isolated nature. They usually depend on adjacent terrestrial vegetation to mitigate abrupt thermal changes and to filter excess nutrients or other pollutants. Fresh water resource management refers to the management of these waterbodies. The intent is to protect these resources to positively affect the quality of life for present and future generations.
