Water gave rise to cities and civilizations across the globe. Without safe and sufficient supplies, our communities simply cannot thrive.
NRDC advocates for smarter water policies that promote water efficiency and improve water management in communities across the United States. We are building support for national runoff pollution controls and developing technology, plans, and financing for green building projects. In a time of increasing water scarcity, we also champion efforts to increase water use efficiency and reduce water waste in cities across the country.
