2022 NACWA Winter Conference
The Future of Clean Water: Emerging Stronger, Preparing for What’s Next
January 31 - February 3, 2022 | Scottsdale, AZ
The events of the past nearly two years have brought increased recognition of the water sector’s critical infrastructure role, while also highlighting the need to protect clean water systems and build resilience from all threats, including climate change, natural disasters, and cyberattacks. The increased visibility of the sector’s importance in ensuring the protection of public health also resulted in significant new funding for clean water infrastructure. But major challenges still lie ahead.
The Winter Conference will explore these challenges, the emerging solutions and how NACWA’s advocacy can best guide the ongoing national dialogue. Sessions will examine efforts by states and the federal government to resolve ongoing issues related to PFAS and other emerging contaminants, flushed wipes, and nutrients, and we will consider how renewed discussions around effectively addressing affordability, equity, and environmental justice concerns will have greater influence on any policy outcomes.
