Water resources indiscriminately cross borders. Rivers and streams lead to ocean outfalls, and currents can carry that water to another country’s desalination intake where it is treated for use. Water, in a global sense, is a unifier. But are we really thinking about that?

Erin Hunt, HDR president of global water program, shares how her experiences growing up in Florida inform her position and vision for water in the U.S. and globally. She shares why global thinking is important for utilities, and how the industry can envision and execute a One Water future.
