ABOUT WATER WEEK
Together, we can all help
elevate water as a national priority!
Plan to Engage Virtually during the 2021 Water Week, April 25th – May 1st!
With the continued uncertainly around COVID-19 and health and safety concerns being paramount, the Water Week partners have made the decision to forego an in-person event in 2021. However, while we won’t be gathering in-person, we will be working collaboratively as Water Week partners to bring you an informative, engaging Water Week virtual experience and we hope you will participate!
With the Biden Administration and a new Congress taking over power in Washington, and the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic continuing to resonate strongly, there has never been a more important time to elevate the importance of water in national policy dialogues. We have already seen incredibly important achievements over recent months due to strong grass roots advocacy, including the first ever federal low-income assistance program for water and more federal funds being directed to water infrastructure. But we still have so much more to do.
There is a lot of buzz right now around federal water policy – and your engagement will be vital to advancing the water sector’s priorities such as increasing federal infrastructure investment, securing significant funding in any upcoming federal infrastructure bill, addressing water affordability, supporting water research & development, and making our critical infrastructure more resilient. The pandemic has underscored the critical role the water sector plays in ensuring the health and well-being for all communities, and 2021 will be a critical year for engaging with federal policymakers to advance this message.
With much of the work of D.C. and Capitol Hill being done remotely over the past year, we are confident that the virtual format of Water Week 2021 will successfully raise the profile of the water sector in D.C. and reach policymakers at a key time. And we are hopeful that a virtual Water Week will reach new levels of engagement from across the water sector nationwide and lend our collective membership a strong voice during these challenging times.
