Today, the Alliance is proud to announce the Water Equity Network— a nationwide community of practice to advance equitable water management practices at the local, state, and national levels.
In 2017, the US Water Alliance released An Equitable Water Future, a definitive report on how to leverage water investment to create social, economic, and environmental benefits for all people.
For the last two years, seven cities have implemented the ideas through the Water Equity Taskforce. The cities of Atlanta, Buffalo, Camden, Cleveland, Louisville, Milwaukee, and Pittsburgh have aligned around a common agenda to use water as a force for equity and opportunity. Watch the video below to learn more.
Now, we will work with cities across the country to scale this work through the Water Equity Network, composed of representatives from local water and wastewater utilities, organizations serving vulnerable communities, environmental groups, and more.
Welcome to our new Water Equity Network cities! Read more in our blog post here.
