Water Environment Federation   American Water Works Association  

This conference is jointly sponsored by the Water Environment Federation and American Water Works Association, in cooperation with the California Water Environment Association and the Water Research Foundation. 

Water and wastewater managers and professionals will gather to hear the latest approaches, practices, processes, techniques, case studies, and research in all aspects of utility management.

Over the past 30 years, members of AWWA and WEF have established The Utility Management Conference as one of the leading, most informative, and most prestigious management conferences available. Come prepared to share your experiences and learn from others in similar situations as we respond to the most pressing management issues of the day.
