Milwaukee Water Commons
Milwaukee is a model water city where we all have a stake and a say in the health of our waters, and we all share in their care and benefits.
Water is an essential element for all life on Earth.
Water belongs to no one and cannot be owned.
We recognize the gift of the Great Lakes; they have nurtured our ancestors and shaped us as a people and as a community. They continue to sustain us.
We all have a profound responsibility to protect and pass on clean and abundant fresh water to future generations.
Decisions about the care and and use of our waters must involve all of us.
