GLIN==> New Alliance for Water Efficiency in Chicago



New Alliance for Water Efficiency in Chicago

http://www.cuwcc.org/national_cwe.lasso

The Draft Report on creating a new Alliance for Water Efficiency, to be based in Chicago, is now available for public comment. A final public workshop is scheduled for June 6 in Washington, D.C. to obtain stakeholder views on the recommendations.

On Dec. 12, 2005, the Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Mayor of Chicago announced that the new national organization on water efficiency will be located in Chicago. The announcement was made as part of the Great Lakes Regional Collaboration Summit.

The location of Chicago was chosen based on stakeholder input from workshops that the location should be central, should be an airport hub, should allow for participation from Canada, and should be close to Washington DC to allow easy access to beltway meetings. A secondary office will likely be housed in DC. The name "Alliance for Water Efficiency" was also recommended by stakeholders as being a name that implied advocacy and action.
