Join us as we gather again in person to celebrate the accomplishments of the clean water sector during the pandemic and prepare for the critical and challenging issues that lie ahead.
As the Nation emerges from the pandemic, the return of NACWA’s in-person Winter Conference will provide an opportunity to meet with utility leaders from across the country and discuss how we can build on the experience gained since March of 2020 and best advocate on the broad array of issues that still face the clean water sector.
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.
