The Water Collaborative
The Water Collaborative of Greater New Orleans works to ensure a lifetime of living, thriving, and loving water for every resident with actions meant to spur long-term change and create movement infrastructure. To help New Orleans combat its flooding challenges, the Collaborative supports widespread adoption of green stormwater infrastructure, which reduces and treats stormwater at its source while delivering environmental, social, and economic benefits.
As a key project to implement its mission, in partnership with the Business Council, The Water Collaborative is working to establish a stormwater fee improve funding structures in New Orleans to cover increasing cost-related to aging infrastructure, increasing flood events from rainfall, tropical storms, and sea level rise. The Water Collaborative is also partnering with Sustaining Our Urban Landscape and the Pontchartrain Park Neighborhood Association to plant 700 trees throughout the Pontchartrain Park community between October 2021-March 2022.
