Utilities and Water Resources
In Richfield, we believe that stormwater, surface water, groundwater, drinking water, and wastewater are all one interconnected resource, and should be managed from a comprehensive, "one water" mindset. Just as all water is interconnected, we are all connected to it: we depend on healthy waters for drinking, cleaning, fishing, recreation, and habitat. Therefore, sustainable and responsible management of water resources is crucial to ensure the benefits of healthy waters for years to come.
