One Water Council

The US Water Alliance convenes the One Water Council, a collaborative cross-sector platform that brings together utility managers, sustainability directors, planners, community leaders, environmental advocates, business leaders, researchers, and others who are driving a movement towards One Water management.

The Council is a unique venue to connect with innovative practitioners who work on a range of one water management strategies, including: green infrastructure, resource recovery, water reuse, watershed planning and restoration, climate resiliency, water efficiency, and more.

The Council offers dynamic opportunities for one water practitioners to come together to learn from each other, partner on policy development, develop joint advocacy positions, and advance integrated approaches to water resource management.
