The homes and businesses in your city rely on effective water management to protect public health, treat stormwater, manage wastewater, and preserve a clean environment, but effective water management can be complex and costly. Integrated Water Management (IWM), or a “One Water” framework, emphasizes a coordinated approach to built infrastructure and natural watershed systems. It considers the urban water cycle as a single integrated system, in which all urban water flows are recognized as potential resources. Many cities are achieving better water quality or reducing costs by promoting conservation, right-sizing infrastructure, or restoring natural systems throughout the water cycle. Learn how your city can begin to implement Integrated Water Management, including how to build successful partnerships between agencies and utilities with different water oversight authority.
