Water Privatization

In a region holding 21% of the world’s fresh surface water, it is no surprise that corporations want to profit from the waters of the Great Lakes. Water privatization, where drinking or waste water systems are run or taken over by for-profit corporations, threatens the affordability and sovereignty of local communities.


At Freshwater Future, we are deeply committed to safeguarding the unique and vital water resources of our region. This commitment extends to opposing water privatization and advocating for community-driven solutions tailored to the needs of Great Lakes communities.
