Public water works: How public utilities are advancing solutions to today’s water challenges


A crowd of activists and councilmembers gathers in Baltimore to call for the passage of the Water Accountability and Equity Act.

While cities and water utilities across the United States may all be unique – the issues the face are not so different. This report provides case studies that illustrate how cities across the country have addressed the common challenges that our water and wastewater systems face without turning to the private water industry’s false solutions.

Each case study outlines a key problem, shares the solution the city developed, and provides contact information for a local expert.

To learn more about public water solutions, and the dangers of water privatization, check out this video we created in partnership with the Story of Stuff Project.
