Most water resources managers agree that clean drinking water doesn’t start at your tap, it starts at the source.
In states with an abundance of wetlands, wetland habitats can store and slow the flow of floodwaters, sustaining rivers and streams, while also serving as a source of water.
To that end, it’s important to find ways to restore and replenish watersheds so they will remain viable sources of potable water.
As tolling has moved from collecting tolls in the lane to all electronic tolling where tolls are processed by account and by mail, the focus of tolls training has adapted to this change as well.
