How are mayors and other local leaders facing an aging infrastructure, tight city budgets and changing climates in the Mississippi watershed?
 
MPR News host Kerri Miller put that question before a panel of leaders at the US Water Alliance's One Water Summit. Miller spoke with:
 
Rita Albrecht Mayor of Bemidji, Minnesota
 
Radhika Fox, CEO of the US Water Alliance
 
• James Anthony Parrott, Executive Director for the Jefferson County Sewer District in Louisville, Kentucky
 
Phil Stang, Mayor of Kimmswick, Missouri
 
Next week Miller will continue to host conversations about water, climate change and equity during a special series called Flyover Down the Mississippi River weekdays at noon.
