• Water is Your Business initiative launches online presence
WASHINGTON, DC, Dec. 8, 2010 -- The "Water is Your Business" initiative, a joint effort of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's Let's Rebuild America campaign and the National Association of Water Companies (NAWC), today launched a new website and social networking tools. The website, www.waterisyourbusiness.org
The "Water is Your Business" initiative, which launched in July, is a nationwide effort to create and sustain a dialogue between business leaders, consumers, community leaders and water providers about local, regional and national water management issues. Events in Miami; Irving, Texas and Cambridge, Mass. have raised awareness of the significant economic and ecological impacts of water provision, use and disposal on businesses everywhere.
"Sustainable, safe and reliable water service is the lifeblood for every community, and it is a critical part of the physical platform of the U.S. economy," said Michael Deane, executive director of NAWC. "We hope his website will raise awareness on the importance of water infrastructure to public and environmental health, and the economic vitality of American communities."
Features on the site include "Local Leaders," toolkits for elected officials and businesses and general information for citizens across the county to promote solutions that increase overall public and private investment in water infrastructure and more sustainable water management.
