Water Week 2018

April 15-21, 2018


Water Sector Unites to Elevate Water as a National Priority

Moving into the second year of the Trump Administration, the effort to elevate water and water infrastructure as a national priority has reached a critical stage.  While the preservation of tax-exempt municipal bonds in the recent tax reform package is a great victory and positive sign for water, the elimination of advance refunding is a red flag that water sector advocates must redouble their efforts to educate policymakers about the importance of water infrastructure funding.

The nation’s most important natural resource must gain even more ground in 2018, and all who care about water can help make that happen.  Together, the unified voice for water embodied by Water Week 2018 is more critical now than ever before.

During the week of April 15 - 21, 2018, water sector organizations, with members spanning every region of the country will gather in Washington, DC and across the country for Water Week 2018.  They will come together to advocate for national policies that advance clean, safe and affordable water for all, supporting their respective communities and a healthy sustainable environment.

Water Week 2018 will communicate the value of water to environmental protection, to economic development and to job creation – and inspire action. More information on activities will be on available on this website soon.  Make your plans now to join us as we elevate water as a national priority!
