NACWA Debuts New Magazine 

NACWA is pleased to release the inaugural issue of its new magazine, the Clean Water Advocate, as a special service for its members. The vision for this bi-annual magazine is to help members navigate the clean water landscape, highlighting crucial water issues, and providing fresh perspectives on topics that matter most for utilities. The new Advocate evolved from our previous newsletter of the same name, and is designed to take NACWA's outreach to the next level. Future issues will be published regularly during NACWA’s summer and winter conferences, both in print copy (available on request) and electronic format (on NACWA’s website).
