WaterNow Alliance will host a 1-hour virtual forum for utility and community leaders nationwide on how they can implement equitable distributed water infrastructure to meet their most pressing water challenges from flooding, to drought to basement backups to water contamination and more. Localized water infrastructure distributed widely across communities can provide sustainable, affordable and climate resilient supplements to conventional infrastructure. These decentralized systems are able to address a wide range of water resource challenges from stretching water supplies, to capturing and managing runoff to enhancing water quality. Public investments in various types of onsite, localized strategies not only effectively meet drinking water, stormwater, and wastewater needs, but can also be more equitable when compared to conventional built approaches.
