Water Management

No water. No municipality. Water is a finite resource essential to all dimensions of municipal sustainability.

Over the past several years AUMA has engaged our members in developing water policies, plans and resources to help municipalities respond to the broad range of water-related issues they face. Based on needs identified by AUMA’s policy work, AMSC has recently developed Water and Wastewater Services to help members reduce water loss and set viable rate structures. This site provides an overview of AUMA and AMSC’s water initiatives as well as examples and resources related to a number of priority municipal water issues.
