The Yadkin-Pee Dee Water Management Group (YPDWMG) was developed through a collaborative effort by a workgroup of 18 Governmental, public water utility and reservoir operator parties providing service within the Yadkin-Pee Dee Basin. The discussions began in 2015 and progressed to a point where a formal organization was formed in 2016.
YPDWMG provides a structure for regional collaboration that can coordinate activities and explore mutually beneficial ways to protect and develop our water supply – and save money and time. Regional collaboration by our water supply managers is a one step towards our goal – enhance the welfare of Yadkin-Pee Dee residents by jointly planning for the sustainable use of water from the Yadkin-Pee Dee River Basin.
The Yadkin-Pee Dee Water Management Group works together to plan for the water supply of the Yadkin-Pee Dee River Basin. The group has a goal of defining the basin’s role in a long-term sustainable and secure regional water supply for the Yadkin-Pee Dee region, and by operating under the principles of regional collaboration, sustainable water supply, environmental stewardship, mutual and collective benefit, shared responsibility, equal representation, and financial stability.
