NACWA participated in the Utility Executives Committee meeting at the annual conference of the New York Water Environment Association (NYWEA) in New York City last week, connecting with one of the Association’s key regional partners and providing a national advocacy perspective to the discussion.
NACWA’s Deputy General Counsel, Erica Spitzig, gave a brief update on a number of current NACWA advocacy priorities, including opportunities to work with the Trump Administration on regulatory reform, a federal low-income ratepayer assistance program, and increased funding for the State Revolving Loan Funds. Spitzig also provided updates on the proposed Great Lakes CSO notification rule, the proposed amendments to the National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Publicly Operated Treatment Works and several recent court decisions impacting the clean water sector.
NACWA thanks NYWEA for the opportunity to participate in the meeting and is always interested in speaking with state and regional clean water groups around the country. If you are interested in a NACWA presence at your state or regional meeting, please contact Erica Spitzig.
