The Association of Metropolitan Water Agencies is an organization of the largest publicly owned water utilities in the United States. AMWA is the voice of metropolitan water systems on federal water policy issues, and its programs foster sustainable, innovative utility management.
In ongoing efforts to engage in federal policy conversations about environmental justice and equity, AMWA hosted a May 16 webinar to provide members with an in-depth overview and training on EPA's Environmental Justice Screening and Mapping Tool or EJScreen.
