How to get smart water in the US
Water is one of the most basic and essential services of life.
Yet, in many places in the country, access to it is limited.
The US is one such example.
That is why the Federal Government has announced a major new program to help address this.
In a new report released by the Water Security Center, the U.S. Government is launching the Smart Water Challenge.
The Smart Water program will allow states to submit water supply requests to the Federal government.
The program will require states to demonstrate the necessary infrastructure and operational capabilities to deliver smart water.
States will then be awarded $1 billion for each Smart Water request.
The report notes that the $1.5 billion in grants will go to 20 states, representing 40% of the nation’s total water supply.
The Smart Water challenge is part of the $3.6 billion Water Security Initiative.
The initiative aims to secure the nation by securing and developing the water supply infrastructure that can meet the needs of Americans.
The project was announced in May.
The challenge was developed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and is part a new water security strategy called the “Global Water Security Strategy” launched in June by the Department of Energy and the Office of Science.
The strategy seeks to protect and develop the water supplies of over 50 percent of the world’s population, according to the Watersecurity Center.
The Global Water Security strategy will focus on the prevention, detection, mitigation and control of water threats, which include drought, pollution, overuse and overconsumption, according the Water security Center.
“We are creating a strategy to help meet our nation’s water security needs, which are a critical need in our rapidly evolving society,” Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz said in a statement.
“The Global Strategy is focused on ensuring that our water resources can meet America’s growing population, as well as the challenges it faces in the 21st century.”
States have until August 26 to submit their Smart Water requests.
