About the Urban Water Solutions Initiative
Under the leadership of its inaugural Steering Committee, the Urban Water Solutions Initiative, facilitated by New Jersey Future, is working to modernize New Jersey’s inadequate urban water infrastructure by leveraging innovative solutions that deliver sustainable infrastructure with multiple community benefits. The Initiative is focusing much of its initial efforts on assisting places with combined sewer overflows (CSOs), in order to create models for other communities.
New Jersey Future is grateful for the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation‘s generous support of the Urban Water Solutions Initiative.
