Water Equity Network

The Water Equity Network, launched by the U. S. Water Alliance in September 2020, encourages and facilitates collaboration between water utilities, community organizations, environmental groups, and individuals  to address water equity issues at the local level. The Water Alliance defines water equity as “when all communities have access to safe, clean, affordable drinking water and wastewater services; are resilient in the face of floods, drought, and other climate risks; have a role in decision-making processes related to water management in their communities; and share in the economic, social, and environmental benefits of water systems.

An Equitable Water Future - A National Briefing Paper

June 6, 2017

From the U. S. Water Alliance, An Equitable Water Future explores the implications of water supply stress and management on vulnerable or disadvantaged communities and discusses the opportunities to build more equitable water systems. The report identifies the ways in which water issues like affordability and aging infrastructure disproportionately impact vulnerable communities, and highlights the potential to leverage water systems to build water equity. The Alliance determined that the focal elements to building water equity are to ensure that all people have access to safe, clean water; benefit from water infrastructure investments; and are climate resilient.
