Who We Are
The Wisconsin Water Alliance is a non-partisan, statewide organization whose mission is to help protect the state’s water resources and advocate for sound water policies that benefit current and future generations of Wisconsin families, cities, businesses, farmers and others. Wisconsin is blessed with an abundant supply of freshwater, including deep, replenishing aquifers, the Great Lakes, the Mississippi River, the Wisconsin River, many other rivers and streams and an estimated 15,000 inland lakes. At the same time, Wisconsin, particularly in the southeastern part of the state, is home to a variety of water technology companies and manufacturers involved in the business of water conservation. The region also is home to the Water Council, a non-profit organization that drives economic, technology and talent development to support the global water industry. A number of Wisconsin industries, including tourism, agriculture, pulp and paper, food products, advanced manufacturing and others, recognize the importance of water as a natural resource and rely on and help protect water as a key component to help grow the state’s economy. Through reasonable state and local policies, we can continue to rely upon our freshwater to help drive the state’s economic engine while at the same time protect this precious natural resource.
