(January 29, 2019) - NACWA provided an important national advocacy perspective during the Government Affairs Committee meeting at the Annual Conference of the New England Water Environment Association (NEWEA), which convened on January 28, in Boston, MA.
This participation also allowed NACWA to connect with one of the Association’s key regional partners, as it joined the Water Environment Federation (WEF) to provide an update on Water Week 2019 and the National Water Policy Fly-In. NEWEA is a supporting organization of Water Week and NACWA applauds their active participation.
NACWA also briefed conference participants on key legislative victories—on integrated planning and the Farm Bill—and discussed several priority regulatory and legal matters that impact the clean water sector in New England, which included the Long Island Sound Nitrogen Strategy and the Massachusetts/New Hampshire small MS4 permit challenge.
NACWA thanks NEWEA for the opportunity to participate in the meeting and is always interested in speaking with state and regional clean water groups around the country. If you are interested in having NACWA represented at your state or regional meeting, please contact Kelly Brocato, NACWA’s Senior Director of Membership Development & Retention.
