Marquette University Unveils Water Study

 As Milwaukee strives to become the freshwater capital of the world local governments, education and industry leaders are working together to better understand the future water demands, and how to protect this area's most valuable natural resource.  

CBS 58 received a copy of the 32 page study, and it's just phase 1 of an over study. It was released this morning here at the A.O. Smith Corporation headquarters.

U.S. Council on Competitiveness and Marquette University worked on this study.

They started in February with a conference inviting 50 national leaders and water experts from all over talk about the economic impacts water and manufacturing play in the world.

They were able to come up with a number of recommendations to increase the future water demand.

The study outlines recommendations on improving the areas of infrastructure, technology, investment and talent.

"This is a great collaboration between the education field and business and government coming together to address these issues,” said Ajita G. Rajendra, CEO, A.O. Smith Corporation.

"Water is a precious commodity. It's going to be a worldwide challenge for decades to come. And so I think about Milwaukee in particular and we are very well positioned in a city to be an international leader when addressing the issues identified in the report,” said Michael R. Lovell, President, Marquette University .

These recommendations will be put into the overall report and given to the president-elect of the United States, whoever that maybe.
