NEWS NOTES ON SUSTAINABLE WATER RESOURCES ICWP and Corps of Engineers In cooperation with the Interstate Council on Water Policy (ICWP), the US Army Corps of Engineers has carried out work on sustainable water resources. More information may be found at: http://www.building-collaboration-for-water.org/Our Nation needs effective solutions for our current and future water resource needs. As we look to the future, aging infrastructure, availability of funding and increased demands on the Nation's water resources caused by population expansion, the need for environmental sustainability and management of the impacts of climate change will only increase the criticality of developing and maintaining our National water treasures. Our goal is to identify and leverage opportunities for collaborative efforts and to create a joint national dialogue for water priorities between states, tribes and the federal resource agencies. By reinforcing partnerships and a more unified Federal voice, we aim to further leverage Federal resources in assisting tribes and states in their water resources planning and management in an era of constrained resources.
