our initiatives


Water fuels our economy, guarantees our national security, and keeps us alive. It is time we have a long-term plan for achieving water security in the United States and internationally.

Water law is a long-term strategy that drives the advancement of water security. Without innovation, without a scientific and data-like approach to law, our laws will not be responsive to real-time needs and demands.

Partnerships drive innovation and promote cooperation and swift resolution of conflicts. We study transboundary relationships and build partnerships to faciliate dialogue, transparency and the development of practical solutions to complex challenges.

Without water, there is no life. Every person deserves a chance to pursue their dreams and provide for their family. Making sure each and every person has water is not a choice,

it is a responsibility.

We want citizens to be informed and engaged on water issues. But that means information must be openly available and presented in a clear, straightforward way.

A river is more than an amenity, it is a treasure. It offers a necessity of life that must be rationed among those who have power over it.

Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes

The CWSC advances water security, protecting the future of our health, economic prosperity, security, food security, energy security and peace.
