The State Water Plan is one of three sections of DEP’s Division of Planning and Conservation and is responsible for maintaining and updating the plan, assessing existing and future water resource demands and needs within the commonwealth and coordinating related plans and policies with local, state and federal agencies.

His familiarity with the water resources in these areas of the state enable him to bring great knowledge to the committee.”
