In April, water sector organizations with members spanning the nation – and in some cases the globe – gathered in Washington, DC for Water Week 2014. Water and wastewater professionals from communities across the country came together to consider and advocate for national policies that advance clean and safe waters and a healthy sustainable environment. They shared perspectives, collaborated on solutions, met with Members of Congress and federal regulators, and celebrated achievements. Water Week 2014 informed and inspired local, state, and national leaders around the considerable value the water sector brings to environmental protection, economic development, and job creation.
