The American Water Charitable Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization created by American Water, today announced support for the recently created National Governors Association Centers for Best Practices Water Policy Learning Network. This unique partnership between the NGA and other partners like the American Water Charitable Foundation will provide a forum for our nation’s leaders to share strategies and best practices on the responsible stewardship of our nation’s valuable water resources.
“As leaders committed to a reliable water future we must work collaboratively to tackle the challenges facing our nation’s water supply,” said American Water Charitable Foundation Board Chairman Aldie Warnock. “Whether it’s looking at ways to address an aging infrastructure or sharing information about water quality, this new program will provide valuable insights.”
The new initiative will include an annual Water Policy Institute that will highlight best practices from states on a wide variety of issues, quarterly webinars and state retreats where designated cross-agency teams will develop policy strategies.
“We are proud to partner with the NGA on this innovative collaboration,” said Darlene Williams, president, American Water Charitable Foundation. “The Water Policy Network is a unique three-year program aligned with our vision of providing support and funding for strategic initiatives that advance our commitment to clean water, conservation, education, and community sustainability.”
