Helping catalyze Milwaukee as a true model Water City-

a place where we all have a stake in the health of our waters and

all share in their stewardship and benefits.

Although Milwaukee's water is very much on the civic agenda, the vast majority of the community is not included in the conversation and the health of the water is not always front and center.  Only by inviting leadership and innovation from throughout the city can we truly grasp what it means to be a model water city and activate the level of commitment necessary for achieving that vision.

It is up to us to revitalize and protect our common waters.

We work towards a bright and hopeful environmental movement in Milwaukee by focusing on 6 different initiative areas which make up our Water City Agenda:

Our waters can divide us. 

They can also set us free.

The story of our rivers and lake is a complicated one, and it continues to be written. We're committed to building a more equitable Milwaukee water future and making sure that story falls firmly on the side of justice.
