climate change water

As we move into the urban century, water is likely to be one of the defining issues for cities. Getting it right will be critical to meeting public health and economic development goals.
Our national water challenges are part of a broader set of global water problems. Basic water services, including safe and affordable drinking water and sanitation, are still unavailable for between two and three billion people around the world.
No matter where they are located, communities nationwide need to prepare for climate change and the impacts it will have on local water resources -- from area waterways to drinking water supplies.
