Testifying before the U.S. House Subcommittee on the Environment November 14, AWWA highlighted successes in the water sector’s response to recent hurricanes and urged structural changes to make restoration of water systems a higher priority during emergencies. 

Mike Howe, executive director of AWWA’s Texas Section and administrator for the Texas Water/Wastewater Agency Response Network (TXWARN), explained how the TXWARN network quickly and successfully assisted Gulf Coast water and wastewater utilities following Hurricane Harvey’s landfall.
