If Milwaukee wants to be a true model water city, all residents must be empowered and engaged in the process of solution making now.  We've used a highly participatory process to tap the expertise, creativity and aspirations of residents from every corner of our city to make this vision a reality.​

By engaging over 1300 people - in large gatherings and small groups, on the street with our mobile water cycle and in workshops, in person and online - we not only imagined what it means to be a model water city, but also created an agenda of initiatives and key practices to guide our work, The Water City Agenda.  

We invite you to take a few moments to learn more and find your

place in this hopeful, innovative effort to build a Model Water City.
