Aug. 4, 2014

WASHINGTON — The fifth annual One Water Leadership (OWL) Summit will take place in Kansas City, Mo.

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Water Alliance’s fifth annual One Water Leadership (OWL) Summit will be held Sept. 15-17, in Kansas City, Mo., according to a press release.

The OWL Summit, a focal point for the national dialogue on resource recovery and green infrastructure, has been driving the notion of water as an integrating strategy for the urban environment, and this year’s OWL will look at the ways water unites us and the ways we can unit its many silos, stated the release.

Multi-disciplinary, geographically diverse presentations will demonstrate the flexibility of green infrastructure to serve a multitude of needs and spotlight community panels will feature cross-department, cross agency community and business leaders to share models of creative integration and innovation, noted the release.

The Kansas City mayor will open the event at 2:00pm on Sept. 15, and the President of Water Business at Black & Veatch Cindy Wallis-Lage, will serve as a keynote speaker, Sept. 16, according to a press release.

“Public, private, non-profit, they’ve all come together to support this Summit,” said Chair of U.S. Water Alliance Dick Champion. “These leaders understand the necessity of these dialogues [and] these models, to move us toward water sustainability that is all the more challenging in a changing climate.”
