Water

Effective management of water resources is critical to the economic sustainability and security of the U.S. Increased population, intensified use and climate change will continue to affect scarce water supplies. Governments, at all levels, will need to adopt collaborative strategies as our actions, or inactions, will have major repercussions on our ability to maintain our global competitiveness.

The U.S. has serious water quality and quantity problems that are likely to get worse. States have taken action on multiple fronts to address the nation’s water quality and quantity problems. However, more action will be needed.
 

BE IT THEREFORE NOW RESOLVED, that The Council of State Governments calls upon the United States Congress, United States Army Corps of Engineers and United States Bureau of Reclamation to form partnerships with the states to extend the productive lives of reservoirs.
