The American Clean Energy Agenda submitted its draft executive order Identification of Critical Water Resources and Mitigation of Water Use Competition in Vulnerable Water Sheds to the White House on July 16, listing water management and protection as top administration priorities. Explaining that there is a water availability crisis, the group advocated for energy efficiency efforts, a national water census, and a water budget. The draft executive order also called for a shift away from water-intensive energy resources such as coal, nuclear, and natural gas.
