Water is the single most important substance on the planet. But for too long water has been overlooked because it is underground – out of sight and out of mind.

Water needs a champion.

The heroes who work on water every day – to protect, clean, and deliver water to people at home and work; to clean and take wastewater away; and to design and manufacture the things that protect communities from floods and storms – deserve our support.

These heroes are why we created Signal Water. They are why we are a proud sponsor of Water Week, and why we support the US Water Alliance’s Guiding Principles to Secure Our Water Future.

Signal Water is the first practice of its kind: the only fully integrated public affairs practice dedicated to the water sector.

We know that investing in our nation’s water infrastructure is an investment in our future—our people, health, and livelihoods—something the nation desperately needs. This practice’s exceptional team provides the holistic approach to public affairs necessary to turn the tide on the issues that matter most in the water space.

What We Do:

Signal Water influences the complex political landscape by providing a comprehensive approach to public affairs. Our bipartisan team has decades of experience in water policy, including specialists in government affairs, coalition and relationship building, equity and inclusion, communications, digital strategy, and strategic advisory services. 

Signal Water advocates for increased attention to our nation’s drinking water, wastewater, stormwater and source water protection. We recognize that now is the time to move forward with a smart, holistic approach to solving our nation’s water challenges.
