US Water Alliance Survey

The following survey will ask you to identify successful actions, investments, and approaches that your organization is taking to respond to a changing climate, as well as lessons learned. It should take 15-20 minutes. 
 
Information will be used to inform a new project at the US Water Alliance that will accelerate a vision for climate resilience and equity through One Water and streamline equitable climate practices into water utility operations, strategic planning, and investments taking place in the next 10 years. All respondent information collected is purely for internal understanding and purposes. It will be kept confidential. Any survey data shared in the final report will be stripped of personal information and synthesized. 
 
If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions, please contact Katy Lackey, Senior Program Manager, at klackey@uswateralliance.org. Thank you for your time and insights!
