Water Sustainability Principles
The U.S. Water Alliance’s Water Sustainability Principles for a National Policy Framework is now available for download. Originally developed through several national dialogues, this Framework has been refined further through the input of 50 water sector leaders. “Shrinking budgets and increasing demands are putting pressures on the water sector overall to embrace innovation, integration and collaboration like never before. Engaging water association leaders to discuss and revise the draft framework was a step toward unifying the voice for water” explains Alliance President Ben Grumbles. “We will continue to take comments on the water sustainability principles and broaden the scope of our collaboration to all interested sectors and citizens from coast to coast.” The Alliance’s goal is to collaborate on a flexible framework that highlights the value of water and the need for specific and sustainable actions.
