JOIN THE LEADERS

Become part of the alliance

WaterNow Alliance is a unique network of local decision makers leading the way to a healthy and resilient water future for their communities.

Water Leaders.
Resilient Solutions.

What is a Water Leader?

We define water leaders as utility governing board members – the decision makers who vote on all things water from policy to programs to rates and who are ultimately accountable to the public. This includes elected and appointed governing members of:

  • Special Water Districts, Wastewater Districts, Stormwater Districts, Conservancy Districts
  • Mayors
  • City Councilmembers
  • County Supervisors
  • Public Utility Commissions
  • Water Commission Members, etc.

Recognizing the equally important decision making role of utility staff, WaterNow Alliance is also open to executive management  including but not necessarily limited to:

  • General Managers
  • City Managers
  • Public Utility Directors
