In the August issue of Water Online – The Magazine, the Milwaukee region was named one of 12 Top Sites in America for Water Technology. The EPA has identified 12 water technology clusters throughout the United States. The areas consist of businesses, education and research institutions, and other organizations focused on the future of water innovation. The featured story provides a snapshot of the enormous tasks these various clusters have taken on in their respective regions and details how innovative clusters focused on water technology, innovation and sustainability are emerging throughout North America.
