    is a powerful metaphor for understanding how rational individual choices can unravel an ecosystem a community and a culture Is water a transcendent commons that requires an integrated approach What are the global thresholds that threaten the resilience of nature s systems What role does water play in them How can we learn from nature s ways to inform our thinking If we truly begin to understand the threats we face and some of the tools to address them how can we manifest solutions in our governments regulations and communities In two meetings held in 2010 a group of experts was challenged to address these and other questions Over these working sessions multiple perspectives with an emphasis on science the arts and change management were tapped The sessions focused on how water is connected to the multiple planetary boundaries and how water infrastructure and urban planning experts should think about redesigning the paradigm of urban management and urban design Participants considered how new infrastructure designs can mimic natural processes and they developed a policy and market transformation agenda based on their discussions Products from the project include a final report Restoring the Water Commons A Facilitated Dialogue About Ecological Thresholds

    in supporting the transition to these new approaches Meeting participants included approximately 100 federal agency staff foundation representatives researchers and academics decentralized systems practitioners and others interested in 21st century sustainable water infrastructure Historically siloed bureaucracies have driven construction of single purpose centralized infrastructures to meet societal needs To build a sustainable future however water management needs to integrate planning and design for all water systems including drinking water wastewater stormwater and water that provides recreational and other ecosystem services In addition sustainable water management requires integration with other infrastructure systems including energy transportation and building Future smart networks will provide significant synergies of design cost savings and positive benefits for society such as increased green space restoration of waterways improved air quality and economic development through creation of green jobs Experts in sustainable water infrastructure management presented new thinking on these integrated systems including case studies from across the United States Federal agency representatives shared their agencies vision and role in helping to develop and implement these new approaches to sustainability and design The presentations were followed by a facilitated discussion session with all participants to allow ideas and information about ongoing and existing projects and other related efforts

    create multiple benefits for communities in terms of water quantity and quality protection air quality and public health improvements property value increases recreational space and climate mitigation Changing an entrenched paradigm of institutions and practices requires an extended period of conversation and research among professionals government and the public along with piloting of on the ground projects Over time these insights and experiences serve as the basis for broad policy and institutional reform to mandate or incentivize new approaches While there is currently an interest in sustainability issues within the federal policy community reform of the scope and nature required must entail a spreading of ideas and broad based mobilization of support throughout the country This project created the foundation for increased civil society engagement in shifting the water paradigm at all three levels national state and local The following objectives were accomplished Gaining support for 21st century water management concepts within the Clean Water Network a national education and advocacy network of over 1 100 clean water organizations from around the country Development of a new Water Alliance of multiple professional utility academic and environmental constituencies seeking to further 21st century water approaches in federal governance Drafting of consensus
