The Milwaukee Water Council is playing a significant part in creating an environment where our region's water industry will continue its global leadership. Our remarkable progress comes directly from the strength and diversity of our members - a wide range of businesses, all levels of higher education, a mix of non-governmental organizations and public institutions. There is no question that we could not have achieved the rapid, striking success without them.


That is why we are asking our current members to renew, and non-members to join. Now is the time.
