Abstract:
Many regions in North Carolina have experienced tremendous increases in population growth and industrial development in the past decade, the Piedmont and Mountain regions being no exception. One of the many implications of this dramatic growth is the depletion of water supplies. Most public water supplies in these regions are from surface water sources (streams, lakes and reservoirs); to keep pace with demand, new surface water sources will have to be developed.

The three scenarios are detailed, along with current water restriction measures. The landscaping industry has been pushing back against recent measures aimed to limit the use of water for landscaping.
