The US Water Alliance, along with leaders from Buffalo, N.Y. representing utilities, local nonprofits, and philanthropy, released “An Equitable Water Future: Buffalo” in April. The report describes challenges facing the city’s vulnerable communities and identifies promising strategies for equitable water management and shared prosperity. It addresses critical topics in water equity, including affordability, water quality, infrastructure, workforce development, and waterfronts. For each topic, the report examines critical challenges, describes promising practices that are currently underway, and highlights priority actions that stakeholders in Buffalo can take to advance equitable water management.
The report is part of the Water Equity Taskforce, a network of cities convened by the US Water Alliance that work together to develop more equitable water policies and practices.
