Milwaukee Water Stories
We believe that sharing Milwaukee Water Stories is a critical lever to support Reflo's mission to catalyze amazing community green infrastructure in Milwaukee.
The stories we share about how water flows through our lives mean more than gallons captured and contaminants removed. They are stories about us, who we are, how water connects and sustains our lives and livelihoods across time and space. Taken together, our stories underscore why we care and inspire us to make a difference.
Many water stories are hidden in plain sight. There are many ways water flows through our lives, jobs, environment, and society. Reflo uses technology and storytelling to make these invisible connections visible.
The Milwaukee Water Stories program area includes three key digital engagement projects (the map, the app, and the game) and one amazing mobile venue, the Virtual Water Table.
