NACWA's active membership and close working relationship with Congress and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) allow members to interact with national policy makers and shape the course of America's environmental protection legislation.
Today's increasingly complex threats to water quality present many legislative and regulatory challenges to the wastewater treatment community. NACWA is responding to these challenges through heightened involvement in a broadening array of clean water concerns, such as advocating increased funding, developing enforceable controls on nonpoint sources, working to improve the total maximum daily load (TMDL) program - in addition to a host of other clean water priorities.
Since its founding in 1970, NACWA has emerged as a nationally recognized leader in both the legislative and regulatory arenas and as a sought-after technical resource on water quality and ecosystem protection.
