One Water requires working together and embracing complex challenges. The US Water Alliance believes crafting solutions at scale can help accelerate sustainable water management in America.
Why consider consolidation?
Consolidating water utility services is one of many options communities can consider to leverage economies of scale and improve water service. While an important tool, utility consolidation is complex. To forge progress, the US Water Alliance convened a leadership dialogue in 2018 that brought together water executives, community leaders, and policymakers in a cross-sector discussion. The dialogue explored the role consolidation can play in helping water sector utilities, and the communities they serve, address existing and anticipated challenges; the benefits consolidation can provide; and the barriers hindering the rate and scope of consolidation in the US water sector.
