NACWA Hosts Technical Session Tailored to Affordability, Integrated Planning, and Increasing Regulatory Asks
(August 7, 2018) - NACWA hosted a technical session on August 6, specifically tailored to addressing the timely and cross-cutting issues of integrated planning, affordability, and the increasingly stringent regulatory requirements that are keenly impacting the municipal clean water community. Guest panelists include Danielle Purnell with Seattle Public Utilities, Fred Andes with Barnes & Thornburg, Larry Levine with Natural Resources Defense Council, and Eric Rothstein with the Galardi Rothstein Group, who acted as moderator. (Speaker presentations can be downloaded here, here and here).
This technical session was part of a broader two-day symposium that centered on water affordability across the United States. Approximately 200 water and wastewater utility professionals gathered in Washington DC for a unique glimpse into the myriad of challenges associated with affordability.
The American Water Works Association (AWWA) and the Water Environment Federation (WEF) partnered for their first annual Transformative Issues Symposium, which will have a unique topic each year to continually engage professionals and foster dialogue on the water sector’s most important challenges.
