WEF Advocates for Law Treating Water as One Resource with Many Uses

On May 10, the Water Environment Federation (WEF; Alexandria, Va.) joined other water sector organizations in sending a letter encouraging members of the U.S. House of Representatives to include language in the Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) that would increase coordination and encourage management of water as one resource with multiple uses.

The letter, sent to members of the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure and the Subcommittee on Water Resources and Environment, asks for increased coordination between the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and municipalities. It also encourages federal and local officials to manage water as one resource with many uses.

On April 28, the U.S. Senate Environment and Public Works Committee passed their version of the legislation – S. 2848, The Water Resources Development Act of 2016. This included a provision citing findings of a WEF and WateReuse (Alexandria, Va.) analysis.
