Water is our most essential resource. All uses of land – agricultural, residential, commercial, and industrial – require access to reliable water supplies; certainly economic growth cannot occur without water. While the relationship between land use and water is fundamental, Washington’s land use planning has been slow to integrate sustainable use of water resources at the local county building permit counter.

Water use has been growing at more than twice the rate of population increase in the last century, and water withdrawals are predicted to increase 50% by 2025 in developing countries and 18% in developed countries. The need for global water innovation is more critical than ever. New government policies and existing process improvements aren’t enough to keep up with the rapidly increasing demand. This challenge presents an opportunity for both entrepreneurs and investors, but investment capital and deal velocity threaten to inhibit growth in the sector.
