One Water recognizes that if we tackle problems based on the complete life cycle of water and larger infrastructure systems – rather than limiting ourselves to one piece of the equation – we can identify and advance more effective and lasting solutions. Our current system of managing water is siloed across distinct municipalities, authorities, private businesses, and multiple regulatory agencies, all of which have narrow slices of authority over some aspect of water. This fragmentation weakens the overall system, and regional collaboration is key to the future of sustainable water management. Join us for part one of a seven-part series diving into each of the Seven Big Ideas in the One Water for America Policy Framework.
