20 Designated Urban Waters Locations
The Urban Waters Federal Partnership established seven Urban Waters Pilot locations in June of 2011, with the goal of working closely with local partners to restore urban waterways. Cleaning up and restoring local water resources is essential to protecting Americans' health and improving their overall quality of life.
Revitalizing urban waterways will also reconnect citizens to open spaces and will have a positive economic impact on local businesses, tourism and property values, as well as spur private investment and job creation in these communities. Progress in the original 7 urban waters locations is detailed in the Partnership in Action Report.
