WEF Joins AWWA for Annual Water Matters Fly-In

The associations hope to provide a unified voice for clean and safe water.

Both the Water Environment Federation (WEF) and the American Water Works Association (AWWA) will visit Capitol Hill for the first-ever WEF-AWWA “Water Matters” Fly-In. Scheduled for April 4-5, in Washington, D.C., the event is intended to assemble representative delegations from each state who will discuss such issues as infrastructure investment, security, funding for water research, and more.

Free to WEF and AWWA members, the event will begin on April 4 with briefings and discussions of current clean water and drinking water issues before Congress followed the next day by scheduled visits with state representatives. In addition, the Fly-In will include a reception for participants and invited congressional guests, a regulatory update breakfast, and a concluding luncheon to share information and lessons learned.

WEF and AWWA also will prepare members by holding a free Webcast from 1 to 3 p.m. EST on March 2 .m. EST that will include overviews of the 112th Congress and new congressional leadership; clean water/drinking water legislation; and the priorities and plans for the April event.

For registration and other details, visit the WEF website.

The deadline to register as a delegate is Feb. 17. To register for the Fly-In, contact Tommy Holmes at tholmes@awwa.org. A block of rooms has been reserved at two area hotels for event participants. WEF members and Member Associations are responsible for their own travel and hotel arrangements.
