Water management as an economic tool


The Urban Water Plan introduces a new industry, creating jobs in the design, construction, and maintenance of stormwater management practices. In addition to the wages paid to individual workers, these new jobs create an economic benefit to society in expanding the tax base and reducing poverty related costs. Intensive implementation of the plan would create up to 101,790 direct and indirect jobs (full and part-time) over the next 50 years and have a regional economic impact of $11.3 Billion.
