Executive Order Formalizes Water Subcabinet, Directs Coordination on Water Reuse

Date: October 16, 2020

President Donald Trump signed an executive order, “Modernizing America’s Water Resource Management and Water Infrastructure,” to facilitate federal coordination on water policy. The order formalizes and adds presidential backing to the “Water Subcabinet,” which consists of Senate-confirmed appointees from across the federal government who coordinate their work on water resource management.

The Subcabinet will make recommendations to the Administration regarding how to support the adoption of water reuse. While still an informal group, the Subcabinet was instrumental in developing the National Water Reuse Action Plan, and participated in the launch event at the 34th Annual WateReuse Symposium in 2019. WateReuse looks forward to continuing our work with the Water Subcabinet to advance water recycling across the country
