Chasing Zero: How Today’s Policies are Shaping the Future of Clean Water

February 4 - 7, 2020

The Clean Water Act has led to tremendous improvements in water quality since it was first conceived of decades ago.

NACWA’s 2020 Winter Conference will explore how a new statutory and regulatory framework will need to emerge to deal with 21st century water quality issues and the critical role the public clean water community plays in ensuring the continued protection of human health and the environment.
