WE&RF Statement on Recent Hurricanes
As extreme weather events continue to drop significant amounts of rain on the US, we extend our deepest sympathies to those who have been and will be in all hurricane paths. Their strength and courage in coping with such powerful illustrations of the water cycle is heroic. All of us involved with WE&RF’s water research pledge, in your honor, to continue seeking solutions to the most vexing water questions. Although an incredibly powerful force to harness and manage, water is often overlooked until a crisis confronts us. However, we pledge to continue seeking the safest and most economical ways of ensuring the health and safety of communities, enabling resiliency through planning that integrates best management practices with innovative resource recovery, and inspiring transformation as we rebuild together, what these weather events took away.
