From accelerating green infrastructure projects to harnessing the power of data, these cities are taking the next step in holistic water management.
This webinar is part two of a six-part series designed to go more in depth to the recently published One Water Roadmap.
From June 27-29, 2017, leaders from across the country will gather at the Intercontinental Hotel in the heart of the French Quarter for a thought-provoking and action-oriented national summit on what it will take to secure a sustainable water future for all. New Orleans is the perfect backdrop for this important solutions-focused conversation about how we value and manage water to foster economic prosperity, community well-being, and environmental sustainability.
