"As the landscape of water utilities becomes increasingly more complicated, AMWA provides  a unique role in helping utility leaders cope with the mounting pressures of doing more with less (funds, staffing, and time).  In addition to keeping utilities informed of current and impending issues and advocating on our behalf, CVWD has made extensive use of other AMWA services, including the Effective Utility Management program and their unique member-to-member surveys.  AMWA also creates the opportunities for utility leaders to share their thoughts and exchange ideas in more intimate settings, such as the Annual Executive Management Conference, which I find invaluable."
Robert Cheng, Assistant General Manager, Coachella Valley Water District
