The sustainable management of life’s most essential resource: Water

December 19, 2016

US Water Alliance releases One Water roadmap. Stantec was a technical reviewer for the document. 

 

The US Water Alliance released a long-awaited publication: “One Water Roadmap: The Sustainable Management of Life’s Most Essential Resource.” It is a report intended to serve as a guide to tackle the United States’ most pressing water challenges.

The 40-page document contains real-world examples which make a compelling argument for what is being called the “One Water” approach. The hallmarks of One Water are:

  • A mindset that all water has value;

  • A focus on achieving multiple benefits;

  • A systems approach;

  • Watershed-scale thinking and action;

  • Right-sized solutions;

  • Partnerships for progress;

  • Inclusion and engagement of all.

You can view and download the report at the US Water Alliance website.

MWH, now part of Stantec, was a technical reviewer for the document. Content was originally published by MWH Global, which is now part of Stantec.
