Water resources are a critical asset for all cities, play an integral role in a city's development, and are an essential element for a sustainable and resilient city.
Milwaukee's Water Centric City Initiative provides a framework for cities to share best practices, indicators, metrics and guidance for the following: integrated water resource management, water supply and treatment, innovation and technology, water related industry, water education, culture and recreation, and water stewardship.
The Water Centric City Initiative encourages cities to adopt and pursue the basic principles outlined below on their own. Begin the Water Centric journey by taking the pledge!
Cities that complete the pledge will receive:
- Guidance and support from City of Milwaukee Environmental Collaboration Office (ECO) program staff
- The Water Centric City Framework: detailed plans for implementation and measurement of the WCC principles
- National and local recognition of accomplishments and water related efforts
The city/community of is committed to the Water Centric City Framework and pledges to work to improve water sustainability by upholding the seven WCC principles.
