Challenge

Creating a regional, cooperative approach for limited water resources

Approach

Fountainworks is leading representatives from local jurisdictions throughout the Research Triangle region of North Carolina in developing a 50- year regional water supply plan.

Result

Hailed as a first of its kind collaborative planning body focused on water supply, 13 local elected bodies signed a memorandum of understanding for cost sharing, collaboration, regional water supply planning, and joint allocation request to the State of North Carolina.  The Partnership and its work have been featured in national conferences and are the subject of an academic case study which highlights successful examples of collaborative governance.
