What Is the Value of Water?

May 14, 2015
8:00 amto10:00 am

Water is jobs and economic growth. Water is a cleaner planet. Water is a stronger Philadelphia. Join us for this interactive discussion featuring regional and national leaders. The session will focus on the state of water infrastructure and water resources and innovative investments in Philadelphia’s water system and across the Keystone State. In Philadelphia new projects are being financed through innovative tools, new community partnerships have been forged, and environmental sustainability has become a top priority. The conversation will cover a number of ways that water investments are moving Philadelphia and the region forward, and how water infrastructure in this region compares to projects and strategies in other regions across the country.
