In Massachusetts, a task force has convened to find solutions to impending water shortage problems in a swath of small communities along I-495, due to increased development. A study that will comprehensively evaluate water management in the area, "will consider options such as water recycling and helping towns find ways to reduce demand." As the corridor is one of the fastest growing regions in the state, officials say that "understanding the water supply is key to balancing the demands of new growth with the preservation of the region's natural resources."
