Given the socio-economic and environmental trends, public health and safety crises, and tremendous political opportunities for change that our country is facing, how do we create a new era of water management in America? And more importantly, one that secures economic, environmental, and community well-being?
To answer this question, the US Water Alliance worked with more than 40 partner organizations to host 15 One Water for America Listening Sessions. These discussions, which took place across the country, engaged more than 500 leaders, including water utility managers, public officials, business executives, farmers, environmental and watershed advocates, community organizations, planners, and philanthropic organizations.
These sessions drew upon the expertise of innovative leaders across the country who are on the front lines of driving sustainable, integrated, and inclusive water management practices and policies. The One Water for America Listening Sessions were possible because of 40 organizations who partnered on convening, report development, and sharing time and insights.
