One Water

One Water is a term used to denote that all water, regardless of origin, has value, and this resource should be managed in an integrated, sustainable, and inclusive way. One Water is way to break down silos in the water industry—storm water, residential, commercial, industrial, municipal, wastewater and drinking water, etc.—to highlight how all water is connected and how establishing water values is critical to the future sustainability of it as a human right. One Water also aims to bring all stakeholders together to solve water challenges. The burden for solving challenges does not fall solely on municipalities, it falls on the engineers, conservationists, innovators, manufacturers, residents, community organizers, business leaders, policymakers, farmers and others to share their experiences when solving problems to secure an equitable water future for all.

Learn more about One Water in the articles below, and in the podcast Talking Under Water, which is hosted by the editors for WWD, Water Quality Products and Storm Water Solutions. For a deeper dive into the One Water movement, its strategies and goals, read the US Water Alliance One Water Roadmap.
