Public Education Committee
The Public Education Committee has three main goals, we:
- Promote education around water and wastewater issues to NEWEA’s constituents as well as to the general public.
- Encourage professional and public participation in water quality management and conservation
- Endeavor to attract young people and students to a rewarding career in the water environment industry.
Committee members develop educational materials; organize, promote and run educational events; and build relationships between the water quality industry and our New England communities.
