The American Water Resources Association held its third National Leadership Institute (NLI) Workshop for State Officials. The workshop resulted in the production of a report that presents state water plans. Seventeen states participated.
Contributors followed a common format, providing an elevator pitch that succinctly described each plan. They provided the statutory underpinnings, the planning horizons, scheduled deadlines and current status of each plan. There is a summary of the process used and resulting components in each plan, as well as the challenges associated with each state’s efforts and a sense of scope and scale, both geographically and financially. The publication editors also highlight some of the common themes and threads in the summaries.
The plan is available as a downloadable PDF. [AWRA]
