In recent decades, agricultural-municipal water partnerships have gained prominence as community driven, watershed-focused approaches to a diversity of water issues. However, these partnerships are as varied as the situations they seek to address, so pinpointing what defines this type of partnership has proved difficult, even with a growing literature and expertise on the topic. This report aims to summarize and identify typologies within the agricultural-municipal water partnership landscape, specifically in the Pacific Northwest, and presents pathways for moving these partnerships forward.
