The National Governors Association’s Center for Best Practices formed the Water Policy Learning Network in 2017 in response to requests by governors for help with a myriad of issues involving water resources. The primary goal of the Network is to inform governors’ advisors about best practices for water policy that they are uniquely positioned to advance. It is co-chaired by California’s Gov. Edmund G. Brown and Maryland’s Gov. Larry Hogan. NGA enlisted a group of national water policy and environmental experts to serve on an Advisory Group including directors from U.S Water Alliance, American Water Works Association, American Farmland Trust, River Network, Coalition of the Delaware River Watershed, American Water, Association of State Drinking Water Administrators, Environmental Council of the States, Rural Community Assistance Partnership, and the Association of Clean Water Administrators.
