Exploring State and Local Water Innovations 
October 21 at 2:00 PM ET
 
 
This Imagine a Day Without Water, the US Water Alliance is hosting a One Water Webinar on state and local policies and programs that water leaders across the country report are making a difference in their communities. With an historical influx in infrastructure funding on the horizon, now is the time to spread how states and local actors are innovating around water to build more resilient water systems.  
 
On Thursday, October 21, The Value of Water Campaign and the US Water Alliance are encouraging participants to hear from two One Water leaders doing just that. Paul Hunt of Portland Water District will discuss Maine’s Sebago Clean Waters coalition, which is leveraging funding for projects that promote water quality. Joone Lopez, General Manager of Moulton Niguel Water District, will share about the California Water Data Consortium, which advances data sharing and economic development.  
 
October’s One Water Webinar will also showcase a new tool released by the Alliance—the Recovering Stronger Knowledge Map—designed to help participants dive deeper into One Water projects in their regions and across the country. The Knowledge Map is a digital tool that plots One Water policies and programs geographically and provides key information about each of the plot points. Webinar attendees will be introduced to the Knowledge Map and will learn about the different ways to interact with the tool.  
 
Join this month’s webinar, “Exploring State and Local Water Innovations,” to celebrate Imagine a Day Without Water and to learn more about what projects are driving change in your state or region!
