In this special episode of Talking Under Water, One Water, One Podcasts, hosts Bob Crossen, Lauren Del Ciello and Katie Johns share the first in a four-part series digging into the value of water. TUW is releasing a special series each Friday in October in conjunction with the Value of Water Campaign—a US Water Alliance campaign—and Imagine a Day Without Water, which is October 21.
The series will focus on sharing diverse voices and perspectives on solving water access, equity and affordability issues, starting with the role of one water before digging into the utility perspective, a community group perspective and finally a perspective from the ground floor on water access. In this episode, the hosts talked to Radhika Fox, CEO for the US Water Alliance, about some of the pillars of one water, including water equity, affordability and access, and overarching barriers they face. They also covered how one water and the US Water Alliance has evolved in the face of the coronavirus pandemic and racially inequity conversations.
In the next three episodes of the series—scheduled to release October 16, 23, and 30—you’ll hear from each of host separately, as the podcast hosts conducted the subsequent interviews individually. Next week, you’ll hear Bob’s conversation with a utility voice on these issues.
The TUW hosts are committed to elevating conversations surrounding issues of water access, equity and affordability and the role of one water in driving change. We encourage you to reach us at [email protected] to share your thoughts and start a dialogue.
