The United States is one of the most urbanized nations in the world. Quality of life is influenced by how well communities manage their urban water resources. These resources keep cities healthy, safe and livable.
However, the cost of consistent and safe water is expensive and may result in damage to natural resources, drainages and ecosystems. This is changing as the water sector shifts toward One Water management.
One Water is an effort to integrate the planning and management of the water supply that minimizes impact on the environment and maximizes contribution to social and economic vitality in a community.
