National Water Policy Forum & Fly-In 2016
Hosted by WEF, the National Association of Clean Water Agencies, and the Water Environment Research Foundation, this event was held in April in Washington, in conjunction with Water Week 2016. The annual event helps inspire local, state, and national leaders and demonstrates the considerable value the water sector brings to environmental protection, economic development, and job creation. You can still view and download materials, including a free webcast to help attendees prepare for their Congressional office visits. Visit this page on the Water Week website for more tips and information to help you prepare for future Congressional visits. If you have questions, email Steve Dye.
WEF Needs YOU to be a Water Advocate!
Aging infrastructure, strict regulatory requirements, and continued economic pressures have put unprecedented stress on local governments and agencies that provide essential water services, but you can help! The Water Advocates program will create a network of water professionals in every state and community, in every congressional district, to get the word out about the value of water and steps needed to protect it. As part of the network, you’ll receive the training and information needed to become an effective Water Advocate for clean and safe water. It’s a great opportunity to help in specific ways, including letters to elected officials and newspaper editors, presentations to business and community organizations, and visits to legislative offices.
