Most Diverse Water Conference in the Nation to Feature Texas' Water Story

The US Water Alliance announced it is bringing One Water Summit 2019 to Austin, Texas from September 18 to 20, 2019.

It is the premier national conference focused on sustainable, integrated, and inclusive approaches to managing water, our most precious natural resource. Learn more about the Summit here.

Austin Mayor Steve Adler said: "We're thrilled to welcome One Water Summit 2019 to Austin. The Texas Colorado River gives this city life and Barton Springs gives this city soul. Water is integral to what makes Austin a thriving city. From our infamous springs, to healthy parks, hospitality, technology industry, and our growing craft beer and consumer packaged goods industry, we could not be Austin without water. The One Water Summit is an excellent opportunity to share our water stories and innovations with a national audience, and to learn from leaders who will come Austin and share their expertise with us."

Austin Water Director Greg Meszaros said: "One Water Summit 2019 will be an exciting opportunity to host water and wastewater utilities and other water experts from across the country. We're looking forward to sharing some of the highlights of Austin's water story through site visits across the city, and then learning from Summit attendees at peer-exchanges and workshops."

US Water Alliance CEO Radhika Fox said: "Austin is the perfect home for One Water Summit 2019 and I want to thank all our local host partners, the Mayor and the community for being such wonderful hosts already. We love the opportunity to bring together such a diverse set of stakeholders annually for an exciting exchange of ideas and discussion about the most pressing water challenges and solutions in the country. At the Summit we'll be unveiling new research and reports from the US Water Alliance and featuring inspiring stories of water leaders - if you care about water, you do not want to miss the Summit."

Local host partners for One Water Summit 2019 include Austin Water, City of Austin Watershed Protection, and the Cynthia and George Mitchell Foundation. Last year the Summit was held in Minneapolis, Minnesota and drew more than 900 attendees from water and wastewater utilities, environmental groups, the agricultural sector, foundations and philanthropies, artists, researchers, and more.
