About Water Week
Together, we can all help
elevate water as a national priority!
While the National Water Policy Fly-In has been cancelled, we believe it is imperative to move full-speed ahead with Water Week, April 26th – May 2nd, 2020 as a virtual event with opportunities to participate in a variety of ways, especially given the enormous national challenges we are currently facing. It is even more critical now for us to send a unified message from all of our organizations to Congress and the federal government about the importance of the work of water professionals, as well as the need for increased federal support for water infrastructure and sound policies to address our water challenges and protect public health. Given the current circumstances and the impacts many of our communities are facing, this message is more important than ever.
These details will include two webinars, joint advocacy materials, a communications tool kit, and facilitating engagement between the water sector and Hill staff here in DC and the Congressional Members back in their home districts.
Now, more than ever, is the time to highlight the critical role our sector plays in ensuring the health and well-being of all. We will strive to do so, with a louder and more unified voice this Water Week.
