Webinar: Communicating Rates in a Changing Water Landscape
September 20, 2018 2:00pm-3:00pm ET
Via Webinar
While water is invaluable and essential, making sure water reaches us safely and is returned to nature responsibly is expensive – particularly considering the pressures water systems face from changing demographics, more extreme weather, and rapidly aging infrastructure. Utilities face competing realities: on the one hand, neither outside funding or water utility rates have kept pace with needs; on the other hand, increasing rates has a real impact on customers.
 
 
Join the US Water Alliance for a webinar on Communicating Rates in a Changing Water Landscape.Hear from leading water communications teams about considerations, messaging, and tactics that help the public understand why investment is so critical and get your questions answered.

Imagine a Day Without Water 2018
October 10, 2018
Across the Country
Imagine:
 
No water to drink, or even to make coffee with. No water to shower, flush the toilet, or do laundry. Hospitals would close without water. Firefighters couldn't put out fires and farmers couldn't water their crops.
 
Some communities in America already know how impossible it is to try to go a day without our most precious resource: Water. But many Americans take water for granted every day. Imagine a Day Without Water 2018 is the fourth annual day to raise awareness and educate America about the value of water.
 
Last year, over 750 organizations came together. Will you join us this year?

Webinar: Advancing One Water Through Arts and Culture
October 17, 2018
Via Webinar

In partnership with ArtPlace America, the US Water Alliance launched an initiative to accelerate innovative and promising efforts to integrate arts and culture into the water sector. Last month at One Water Summit 2018, the Alliance released Advancing One Water Through Arts and Culture: A Blueprint for Action to demonstrate how arts and cultural strategies are helping achieve sustainable and inclusive water goals; inspire action from water leaders to consider, implement, and scale arts and cultural initiatives; and help inform interested artists of the priorities of the water sector and help them see how they can partner with water utilities, agencies, nonprofit organizations. Learn from both arts and water leaders about how integrating water, arts, and culture has helped imagine new solutions to water challenges.
