AMWA’s 2022 Water Policy Conference begins today in Washington, D.C. Water utility leaders from around the country have convened to discuss national policy developments on water sector issues. After AMWA’s welcome luncheon, CEO and Co-founder of Punchbowl News Anna Palmer will discuss how the potential changes on Capitol Hill later this year may affect utilities. Next, EPA’s Assistant Administrator for Water Radhika Fox will provide an overview of the Biden Administration’s agenda, including the recent historic investment in water, progress on Justice40, and updates on the Lead and Copper Rule revisions. AMWA senior staff will round out the day by briefing attendees on key policy issues and answering questions.
On Tuesday, top officials from EPA, Interior, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, and the Council of Infrastructure Financing Authorities will share perspectives on a range of policy topics. Esteemed congressional members addressing the participants include:
