Pacific Institute's new book, A TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY U.S. WATER POLICY outlines the need for a coherent U.S. Water Policy.  It cites the Partnership for Onondaga Creek’s water quality and environmental justice achievement.  The Partnership for Onondaga Creek is featured in “A Case
Study of the Community Impacts of Combined Sewer Overflow Abatement Projects in Syracuse,
NY.”  This case study highlights the community’s struggle for environmental justice that led to Onondaga County’s use of widespread green infrastructure to address its combined sewer overflow
problems. The book puts these local water quality efforts in a national context.
