Utility executives are already registering to attend AMWA’s 2023 Water Policy Conference, March 6 to 8, in Washington, D.C. The highly anticipated event expects to draw water sector thought leaders, committee heads from the House and Senate, and partners from across the country to discuss federal policies impacting water utilities. AMWA has invited EPA’s Assistant Administrator for Water Radhika Fox to provide an update on the administration's plans for future drinking water investments, regulatory topics such as PFAS and the Lead and Copper Rule Improvements (LCRI), and environmental justice actions.
“The Water Policy Conference offered an unmatched opportunity to connect with lawmakers and officials from federal agencies that are influential to water policy,” said Lindsey Rechtin, CPA, President/CEO at Northern Kentucky Water District about the 2022 event. “I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in learning more about the federal administration and agency activities relevant to drinking water systems.”
In addition to the opening day’s keynote Jonathan Martin, bureau chief and senior political columnist for POLITICO, AMWA has confirmed a number of noteworthy speakers.
The robust agenda will highlight the following topics, among others:
- Affordability and cybersecurity activities.
- Updates on drinking water rules for PFOA and PFOS, Build America, Buy America, and the LCRI; and
- New federal drinking water and wastewater infrastructure opportunities.
