Webcast: Institutional Issues for One Water Management

Dec 24, 2019
The term, “One Water,” recognizes that water from all sources must be managed holistically and cooperatively to meet social, economic, and environmental needs. As utilities transition to a One Water approach, they may encounter institutional issues related to planning and collaboration, legislation and regulations, economics and finance, culture and capacity, and citizen and stakeholder engagement. Jointly funded by the Water Research Foundation, Water Environment Research Foundation, and Water Research Australia,
project #4487​ presents a framework for overcoming these institutional issues and provides case studies to show how utilities have implemented a One Water approach. This Webcast will present the findings from the report and case studies from Clean Water Services in Oregon, and the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission.
