With Congress considering billions of dollars in infrastructure funding to help rebuild the economy, the Water Hub at Climate Nexus worked with WaterNow Alliance on a video making the case that the next wave of water investments should focus on green and localized infrastructure.
From green streets to stormwater parks and on-site water recycling systems, we are seeing communities across the country embrace solutions designed to make wiser use and reuse of existing water supplies.
Our new Future of Water video, below, was inspired by WaterNow's Tap into Resilience campaign, and designed to showcase the localized water projects springing up across the country. Many rely on nature, and provide bonus benefits like cleaner air, urban cooling and outdoor access.
We hope you will watch and share the video, using hashtag #FutureofWater.
