The topic is “How AWWA Can Work with Small Systems.” Water utilities face unprecedented challenges as increased regulations and scrutiny draw attention to their operations. While larger utilities tend to be better positioned to adapt, small systems continue to have unique needs in this fast-evolving world.

 In the past few years, AWWA has increased our focus on providing resources to help fulfill the unique needs of small systems through partnerships and newly available funds. From the EPA training to the updated “Let’s Talk about Safety”, we are making it easier for small systems to engage with AWWA on a limited budget.

Join AWWA staff and fellow Section leadership to understand how Sections can engage small system employees, communicate the value of AWWA membership, and hear about tangible ways to work with small systems.
