State Farm Renews Support for Smart Water for Smart Regions
State Farm was a core supporter of the initiative in 2012, along with the Joyce Foundation and Surdna Foundation. Funding is being used to help communities develop strategies to alleviate costly water leakages, as well as property damage from flooding. Organizational supporters include the American Water Works Association, Water Environment Federation, Alliance for Water Efficiency, and the Great Lakes Commission.
“State Farm’s leadership in this pioneering Great Lakes initiative is greatly appreciated” says Kathy Tholin, CNT’s CEO. Launched in 2012, the goal of “Smart Water for Smart Regions” is to help communities in the eight Great Lakes states (Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin) deliver water services to homes and businesses more efficiently, effectively, and transparently, while sustaining the region’s water resources.
