Military members are a good fit for the water sector because of their technical expertise and experience working nontraditional hours in a regulated environment. The goal of the Veterans Workforce Initiative is to help Veterans secure jobs in the water industry. Volunteers from AWWA Sections are available to network with Veterans and help connect them to the water sector.
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law – enacted in November 2021 – is launching a new era of funding opportunities for drinking water and wastewater projects across the U.S. and U.S. territories. Here, AWWA offers resources and guidance for water professionals seeking to access this funding for local water projects.
The newly released tool is intended to help drinking water utilities of all sizes identify and document quantitative and/or qualitative metrics to assess the benefits of source water protection measures and programs over time and help you evaluate the success of your program.
