Shifting the paradigm to one water management, join the Urban Water Sustainability Council this Fall to look at the many ways water unites us and ways we can unite its many silos.  As a focal point for the national dialogue on resource recovery and green infrastructure, this Leadership Summit has been driving the notion of water as an integrating strategy for the urban environment.

  • Spotlight Panels will feature cross-agency, cross-department, community and business leaders to share their models of creative integration and innovation. Multi-disciplinary and geographically diverse presentations will demonstrate the flexibility of green infrastructure to serve a multitude of needs.
  • Community Benefit Strategies that reach the underserved.
  • Precision Conservation – modern technology that helps make smart decisions in the watershed
  • Strategic Sidebar conversations will allow those at the cutting edge to compare notes and tackle obstacles.
  •  Roundtable discussions will shed light on emerging opportunities and challenges.

Attendees and presenters will reflect the broad scope of stakeholders needed to renew and rethink our cities with resource recovery and green infrastructure.  Join water leaders, sustainability directors, transportation, parks and recreation officials, as well as business leaders, non-profit organizations, and U.S. EPA regulators as we drive the paradigm shift for water sustainability.   The Leadership Summit is organized annually by the U.S. Water Alliance’s Urban Water Sustainability Council.  Through this Leadership Summit the Council seeks to connect the dots among water, land use, parks, forests, transportation, energy, and other sectors around a goal of revitalizing cities with multi-benefit projects that produce triple bottom-line results.
