What is
the blue economy?

Put simply, if it touches water, it’s part of the Blue Economy.


From next generation water filtration membranes to IoT based water-quality sensors.

From the pumping and plumbing of your city’s pipes to tomorrow’s Smart pipes in your home.

From the latest autonomous underwater vehicle to satellites monitoring nutrients in our great lakes.

From a ship on the open waters of Lake Erie to biomimicry-based tree wads stabilizing our shores.

From water to pipes and every sensor in between.

This is the blue economy

Cleveland Water Alliance recognizes that solution-building across sectors and stakeholders is a critical starting point when addressing the value of water.

As we look toward the needs of the future, our economy will demand the expertise of water innovation technology. Industry and communities alike will need creative, new solutions to manage, conserve and optimize their water resources.
