Natural Resources Defense Council Promotes Water Conservation, "Green" Infrastructure

Published Aug 04, 2014

The Natural Resources Defense Council has released an “issue brief” encouraging municipal water conservation as a way of reducing wastewater flows.  Titled “Waste Less, Pollute Less:  Using Urban Water Conservation to Advance Clean Water Act Compliance,” the NRDC issue brief urges EPA and state governments to use Clean Water Act regulatory requirements to achieve reductions in urban water demand.  The NRDC also endorses use of federal financing programs to create and retrofit infrastructure for stormwater infiltration and reuse.  For more information about Clean Water Act requirements, contact James Tupper at
