The Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS; Milwaukee) has released the first draft of The AWS International Water Stewardship Standard. The document will be open for public consultation until June 15.

The standard aims to support water users in taking appropriate actions to evaluate and improve their effects on watersheds. Designed to apply globally in all relevant sectors, the document aims to build on other water-related tools, help users reduce their water risk, and generate social, environmental, and economic benefits, according to an AWS news release.

AWS was formed in 2009 to address water use issues worldwide. It consists of 10 board organizations that include the Water Environment Federation (Alexandria, Va.). For more information, see
