National Clean Water Policy Fly-In

April 25-26, 2023 | Washington, DC

The National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA), the Water Environment Federation (WEF), the Water Research Foundation (WRF), and the WateReuse Association are proud to present the cornerstone event for Water Week 2023 – the National Water Policy Fly-In.

Over the past two years, the water sector’s strong advocacy efforts have resulted in historical policy achievements and levels of federal funding passed into law that will have a positive lasting impact on countless communities across the country.

In culmination of these achievements, 2023 marks an exciting time for water professionals from around the country to gather in-person in DC to hear from policy makers about the implementation of these achievements, the outlook across Washington over the next year, and to jointly advocate the critical value and importance of ensuring all communities have safe, sustainable, reliable, and affordable water. Join the water sector at this pivotal juncture and help build upon this positive momentum with the Administration and Congress.

The two-day event will begin on Tuesday afternoon, April 25 where attendees will gather to network and hear from key senior EPA and other government officials. The agenda will continue Wednesday morning, April 26 where prominent Members of Congress will deliver remarks. Wednesday afternoon will be reserved for attendees to meet with legislators on Capitol Hill – which is once again fully open to the public. Finally, attendees will round out the week with friends and colleagues at the 2023 Water Week Reception.
