Tomorrow night, Tuesday, November 7, at the Conservation Advisory Council's regular monthly meeting, The Nature Conservancy will present their plan for conducting such an assessment, which include:
- Working with the Department of Public Works and other experts to identify and characterize the historical system performance of Hudson's water supply system as well as determine the desired performance metrics and system vulnerabilities.
- Engaging with stakeholders to help reveal problematic climate and non-climate scenarios using "decision scaling" (a method for tailoring data to best inform water decisions).
- Conducting a source risk analysis to identify areas more likely to generate run-off and prone to transporting pollutants under poor land management to help determine source water protection with the highest return on investment.
