Gilbert said it is driven by considerations including an aging infrastructure and the development bound to follow the anticipated wave of baby boomer retirements in New Hampshire.

The water feels OK now, Gilbert said, but before long the state could experience problems with the resource that would be detrimental to citizens and businesses.

“There is an opportunity to proactively manage the resource before it becomes a crisis,” Gilbert said.

Ultimately what the state wants in 25 years is water quality and quantity that is “as good or better than it is now,” Gilbert said.
