Water Utilities as Anchor Institutions
Water utilities can root themselves as anchor institutions within their communities.
Anchor institutions are:
- Public service entities—like hospitals, universities, or utilities–which are tied to a location due to infrastructure or mission.
- Entities that provide critical services and vital assets to improve economy, health, environment and well-being in communities.
- Organizations that provide active civic leadership and participate in and add to the public life and character of their community.
View the following webinar to learn what some water utility leaders are doing above and beyond their day-to-day operations to root themselves as Anchor Institutions within their communities. The webinar is an overview of Anchor Institution Activity Areas from the utility leaders, themselves, about these amazing efforts to create additional benefits to their community.
