Recognizing the increasing challenges facing America’s drinking water and wastewater systems, the Aspen Institute convened a multi-stakeholder dialogue to help provide clarity and promote leadership to address those challenges. The Aspen Institute’s Dialogue on Sustainable Water Infrastructure in the U.S. brought together distinguished leaders from the water utility industry; federal, state and local government regulators; and non-profit environmental groups to develop policy recommendations that address water infrastructure planning and management challenges for the coming decades.

The Aspen Dialogue gave rise to a set of 10 policy recommendations. View the full report.

It was sponsored by the National Association of Water Companies, the Water Environment Federation, CH2M HILL and the Wallace Genetic Foundation.
