Commitments to action on building a sustainable water future

This document describes some of the long-term water management strategies aimed to reduce and mitigate the incidence and impact of water stresses on U.S. communities. It includes the commitments made by institutions and organizations from all sectors to build a sustainable water future in the United States.

This dialogue is increasingly important as a growing population and changing climate continue to exacerbate water challenges.
