New water resource released
Download your copy of the Arch Cape case study—highlighting the work of land trusts and community drinking water.
At a glance: The community of Arch Cape sits on the scenic Oregon Coast, nestled between the ocean and coastal rainforests rising up 3,000 feet. This forest is the source of the community’s drinking water, but management for industrial timber production has impacted the quality of the community’s drinking water.
The solution? Start a community-owned landscape. Instead of responding to and treating water contamination, prevent it from occurring in the first place by changing land management practices. Protect and manage land to ensure a healthy forest—to help provide clean and abundant drinking water.
