Cumulative Water Use and Availability Study for the Susquehanna River Basin

The Cumulative Water Use and Availability Study represents the most comprehensive evaluation of water use and availability throughout the Susquehanna River Basin conducted to date. The effort was driven by the Commission’s Comprehensive Plan to manage water resources beginning at the watershed level to assure short-term resource availability and long-term balance between healthy ecosystems and economic viability.
