Protecting Our Natural Resources Protects Our Quality of Life

High-quality, protected natural resources.

For Douglas County to stay the great place we know and love, quality of life requires the County Commissioners’ focus on the high quality of our land, air, and water – and protecting our wildlife by protecting their habitat. With that in mind, did you know that today – through some exceptional partnerships – more than 40% of all the land in Douglas County is public or protected land?  And keeping with our belief that water is one of our most precious resources,  98% of residents and businesses served by central water service are covered by an approved water conservation plan – accomplished through some additional, extraordinary partnerships with the County’s many water providers. Protecting our natural resources does protect our quality of life.
