Description:

The New England region (including the 6 New England
states plus upstate New York) offers a very diverse geography,
matched by an equally diverse economy and human
population. Livelihoods throughout the region are based
on service industries that depend heavily on communication
networks and travel, the manufacture and transport of
industrial goods and materials, recreation and tourism, agriculture,
and resource extraction (forestry and fisheries).
Changes in the future which might affect either the quality
or the quantity of water available to the region could have
a profound impact on regional economy and populations.
