With the U.S. government shutdown, WEF is, of course, ready to work with any federal employees on membership renewals, conference registrations, or other costs affiliated with our organization.

On Dec. 31, 2018,  EPA put out a contingency plan for  shutdown of the agency due to a funding hiatus, which as stated in the plan, provides general guidelines for the orderly handling of EPA operations in the event of a funding hiatus caused by the lack of appropriations.

Also, our Jan. 10 webinar will feature a discussion of the impacts of the shutdown on federal grants, policymaking, and other operations involving the water sector.
