Together with our partner convention centers and hotels and in consideration of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance and local government requirements we are currently planning for the following health and safety measures for all AWWA 2022 Conferences.
  • All participants at ANY AWWA CONFERENCE OR EVENT must wear masks, regardless of vaccination.
  • Physical distancing encouraged
  • Hand sanitizing stations
  • Waiver review and release required to obtain attendance

The safety measures may be updated if conditions change.
