Water quality and quantity woes

As a professional environmental scientist, it's abundantly clear that North Carolina's water quality is in significant decline. From what I've seen across NC during the past 30 years, urban/suburban sprawl, poorly maintained wastewater treatment infrastructure, excess nutrient loading, and increases in toxicant loading are negatively affecting many aquatic species across our state. If our aquatic species are having trouble living in the same water we drink, we have major problems. What solutions can you provide to ensure that these trends do not continue?
