Partnering with national agencies and NGOs to improve water quality in cities

There are Urban Waters Federal Partnerships in 19 U.S. cities. These partnerships convene 14 agencies of the federal family and connect them to state, local, and NGO partners to develop place-based solutions to urban water quality problems.

Last year the national network of partnerships reached out to a variety of NGOs to sign on as supporters of the Urban Waters Federal Partnerships. SavATree stepped up to show support and is pleased to be listed with national supporters of the effort, such as American Planning Association, American Society of Landscape Architects, the Conservation Fund, the Trust of Public Land, and the Nature Conservancy. You can read about all of the NGO supporters, including SavATree and its work in the Partnerships, here.


It’s exciting for us to partner with leading national agencies and NGOs on urban sustainability efforts!
