Why Attend?

National Pretreatment Workshop (May 13-15)

The Workshop will explore topics critical to pretreatment programs, as well as issues that utilities are currently facing. On the second day of the Workshop, we will come together with the Association of Clean Water Administrators (ACWA) National Pretreatment Meeting, allowing participants to discuss with federal, regional, and state regulators, significant issues such as PFAS, enforcement, and water reuse. Additional featured speakers and panel presentations will address FOG, marijuana operations, electronic data reporting, flushable wipes, and more!

Both new and seasoned pretreatment professionals will find value in the optional day of training. Course options include:

*separate registration required
  • Collaborate with fellow clean water colleagues and share ideas, challenges and practical solutions.

  • Connect with EPA officials and state regulators to discuss priorities in your region.

  • Engage through roundtable discussions, thought-provoking panels and networking receptions.

Here are what last year’s Workshop attendees had to say:

“Always a good opportunity to network. The case studies are always helpful. Provides for direct contact with Environmental Protection Agency.”

“It is a great platform for discussing pretreatment concerns and issues and it benefits the learning and understanding of our role in pretreatment.”
