AWWA 2018 Fly-In a Success

A record 160 water utility leaders from 48 states converged on Capitol Hill Wednesday to advocate for water infrastructure investment and source water protection during the American Water Works Association’s Water Matters! Fly-In.

Hosted by AWWA’s Water Utility Council, the Fly-In is the focal point for the association’s grassroots lobbying efforts. It serves to not only advance the water community’s legislative goals, but it also further establishes AWWA members and staff as sources of information on water issues in Washington.
