Over the next decade, a majority of the nation’s 300,000 water utility positions will need to be filled. While daunting, this looming demand presents a fantastic opportunity for our sector to break down past barriers and reimagine how to attract and retain a strong and diverse talent pipeline of future water workers.

Today, we are proud to share our latest report, Toward a Strong and Equitable Water Workforce, which highlights strategies and initiatives to drive inclusivity, representation, and resilience in the water sector—and to scale those best practices across the country.

We thank those who have paved the way in this crucial work, and we hope others will join us in positively shaping the future management of our most precious resource.
