Getting Smart about Water.

The Water Collaborative offers a range of community programming and member services. Our monthly lunch and learns offer professional development to engineers, architects and urban planners. We bring local expertise to conferences and community meetings though presentations and walking tours. Through research-based advocacy, we help raise standards, remove barriers and identify new resources for smarter water management with green infrastructure.

While climate change is increasing risks, it is also increasing demand for water management innovations worldwide.
