Watch the webinar here.

This month’s One Water Webinar will feature stories from some of the US Water Alliance’s Water Equity Taskforce cities about how they are working on the ground with community organizations to apply strategies from the Alliance’s Equitable Water Future National Briefing Paper.

Social and economic inclusion is a key component of the One Water movement. A sustainable water future requires that all people have access to clean, safe, affordable water and wastewater service. However, frontline communities across the nation experience compounded water challenges. Low-income communities and communities of color are most often hit first and worst by flooding, storm surges, compromised water infrastructure, and other water crises.

The Water Equity Taskforce is comprised of a network of cities, each anchored by a US Water Alliance member utility. This webinar features leaders from three of these anchor institutions and focuses on their collaborative efforts to develop and advance more equitable water policies and practices. Webinar attendees will learn more about how cross-sector partners in Camden, Buffalo, and Louisville are using equitable water management to promote job creation, workforce development, climate resiliency, improved public health, and more.
