Water shapes the land, but our structures and habits shape water in all of its forms. The most important decisions that we make as a county involve water. It determines our health and well-being, influences our economic viability in multiple ways, and has a direct impact on agricultural production. At the same time, it erodes the land and scours the streams to the point where they support little aquatic life beyond mosquitoes. When water is contaminated, our streams, wetlands, and reservoirs suffer. Explore the Project Albemarle website to discover the many connections between rainwater, surface flow, groundwater, storm water, and our water supply.
