A diverse group of US water sector organizations will join forces in Washington, DC for Water Week 2016. Scheduled for April 10-16, this annual event provides an opportunity for water professionals to advocate for national policies that advance clean and safe waters in support of a healthy sustainable environment. The goal is to inform and inspire state and national policymakers about important water-related issues while communicating the value of water to environmental protection, economic development and job creation.
Organized by the Water Environment Federation (WEF), the National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA), Water Research Foundation (WRF), the Water Environment Research Foundation (WERF) and WateReuse, with support from national, state and regional water organizations, the event will bring hundreds of water and wastewater professionals to the nation’s capital to meet with members of Congress and federal regulators; discuss key legislative, regulatory and legal water developments; showcase innovations and new technologies and celebrate the progress of water professionals in addressing our nation’s water challenges.
