WateReuse members from across the United States visited Washington, DC to elevate water as national priority during the National Water Policy Fly-In, a highlight of Water Week 2017. WateReuse participated with other water sector organizations to deliver a clear, consistent and unified message about the importance of water and water infrastructure to Congress and the Administration.

Safe, reliable, locally controlled water supplies are essential to livable communities that foster healthy environments, robust economies and a high quality of life. Recycling water to meet local needs for irrigation, agriculture, energy generation, manufacturing and drinking is gaining momentum across the country. “To grow the economy, we need to invest in infrastructure – that means better roads, safer bridges and a sustainable supply of clean water,” said WateReuse Executive Director Melissa Meeker. “Investing in water recycling will not only create jobs now but also ensure a reliable supply of clean water for sustained economic growth.“
