The recent significant political shift in Congress will impact and shape issues such as funding and regulative oversight. These shifts impact the regulatory community, which is also tackling many rule making efforts and other regulatory actions related to the water sector. The changes taking place at the Federal level will likely impact large segments of the Clean Water/Drinking Water communities. Updates in these areas will help to keep water professionals on the cutting edge of potentially significant changes impacting their utility or company. The WEF/AWWA Fly-in is an avenue that provides direct access for water professionals to their Congressional state and district representatives. The information presented will provide background information and an overview on how this event is valuable to the water community.
