In April, water sector organizations with members spanning the nation – and in some cases the globe – will gather in Washington, DC for Water Week 2014. Water and wastewater professionals from communities across the country will come together to consider and advocate for national policies that advance clean and safe waters and a healthy sustainable environment. They will share perspectives, collaborate on solutions, meet with Members of Congress and federal regulators, and celebrate achievements. Water Week 2014 will inform and inspire local, state, and national leaders around the considerable value the water sector brings to environmental protection, economic development, and job creation. The growing list of Water Week 2014 events shines a bright light on the many compelling challenges and opportunities in which the water sector is engaged.
