This session brings together key players to delve into the extraordinary work taking place in the region to advance sustainable water strategies, including the unique watershed, collaborative approach to protecting water resources across the Delaware River Basin. Speakers will cover local green stormwater programs, success in addressing equity and affordability challenges, the importance of strong local water champions, innovative financing, and philanthropy to accelerate localized infrastructure and more.
