Briefly, what are you going to do?

Provide cool, clear water stories in the WaterCitizenNews.Com Preview Edition. We want to continue developing the site to further engagement with water citizens (the full “water psyschographic”) and help the members of the water community (utilities, nonprofits, agencies, and other stakeholders) share their stories with a broader audience.
