One Water - Changing the Way America Views, Values and Manages Water
Radhika Fox, CEO, US Water Alliance & Director, Value of Water Coalition
In the face of water crises– aging infrastructure, water scarcity, droughts, flooding, sea level rise – the need to accelerate innovative, inclusive, and integrated water stewardship is more important than ever. A One Water approach views all water – drinking water, wastewater, stormwater, greywater and more – as vital resources for our present and our future. Our collective future depends on sustainable water management. It is the backbone of strong economies, vibrant communities, and a healthy environment. Radhika Fox will discuss the one water movement underway around the country that is securing a more sustainable and resilient water future, now and for future generations.
