a nonprofit media outlet for water solutions
waterloop: exploring solutions


waterloop helps water leaders
to discover solutions and drive change.

waterloop is a nonprofit media outlet practicing solutions journalism - exploring the progress and successes in tackling water challenges in the United States. waterloop podcasts, videos, and social media content feature the people and projects creating sustainability and equity in water.  

While anyone interested in water can tune in, waterloop is especially for people who work in water and its connected sectors - such as utilities, government, universities, engineering firms, technology companies, and advocacy groups. The content allows the audience to become more knowledgeable leaders and creators of change in communities.

waterloop is supported by funders, sponsors, and partners that are also focused on highlighting and advancing water solutions. Although we share common interests in issues, waterloop maintains editorial independence in selection, production, and distribution of content. 

We're always open to ideas for content and opportunities to collaborate!
