Water Week Events

National Water Policy Fly-In

April 17 - 18, 2018
Washington, DC

As the Trump Administration and Congress turn their collective focus towards infrastructure investment, it is crucial that policy makers hear directly from YOU about the challenges your utility, agency and community face; and that sound policy and robust investment in water are critical for all Americans right now. The issues of infrastructure funding, affordability, regulatory reform, and research support will be front-and-center in 2018, and utilities nationwide must make their voices heard on these critical priorities.

Together, we can move the levers of power, and continue advancing water priorities on the national and local levels.

WateReuse Association Water Week 2018 Congressional Briefing
Harnessing the Transformational and Economic Value of Water Reuse

April 19, 2018
10:00 am – 11:00 am
Senate Visitor’s Center Room 202
(Inside the Capitol Visitor Center)

Communities across the country are increasingly harnessing the transformative and economic value of recycled water. Water reuse is not just a tool used in the arid West to address water scarcity, but a way for communities to better manage their local water resources to help spur economic growth and plan for the future. From supporting agriculture and attracting industry to augmenting drinking water supplies and recharging aquifers, recycled water is being used to address a diverse set of water resource challenges. This Congressional briefing will highlight how four different communities across the country are using water recycling in four different ways to bring local economic benefits. The briefing will feature: Loudoun Water’s (VA) recycled water for data centers; City of Dickinson, North Dakota’s recycled water for oil and gas operations; the Orange County Groundwater Replenishment System (CA); and Pure Water Monterey’s (CA) recycled water for agriculture irrigation.
