Dear Water Council Members & Partners,
On March 22, 2016, the Administration will host a White House Water Summit to raise awareness of water issues in the United States, and to catalyze ideas and action plans to build a sustainable and secure water future through innovative solutions. This event, which builds on the December 15, 2015 White House Roundtable on Water Innovation and other Administration activities, will bring together representatives from Federal, State, regional, local and tribal levels, and from other stakeholder groups, to discuss and advance progress in this important area.
As part of this effort, the White House is issuing a call-to-action for individuals, organizations, and institutions from all sectors to take new, specific, and measurable steps to address key water issues, such as drought and flooding; water availability and quality; water-use efficiency; water security; ecosystem requirements; or others. If applicable, announcements of these steps may be incorporated into official materials available during the White House Water Summit, and involved individuals may be invited to participate in the White House Water Summit and/or related events.
For more information on this event, including links to examples of commitments made in response to previous White House calls-to-action, and to submit your input, click here.
Dean Amhaus, President & CEO
The Water Council
P.S. – To keep our momentum rolling, Tweet the White House to ask the President to include water in his State of the Union address on January 12, 2016.
