Attendees will learn what communities are currently undertaking to enhance resiliency for our critical municipal infrastructure, how these efforts are being financed and practical solutions to a very complex problem. The conference will be structured to enhance interaction among attendees to maximize dialogue and information exchange.

The Value of Water Campaign Announces 3rd Annual Day of Action
Imagine: no water to drink, or even to make coffee with. No water to shower, flush the toilet, or do laundry. Hospitals would close without water. Firefighters couldn’t put out fires and farmers couldn’t water their crops.
Join us on October 12, 2017 as we raise awareness and educate America about the value of water.
In 2016, nearly five hundred organizations nationwide joined us to communicate the importance of safe, reliable water infrastructure. Together we generated more than 12 million impressions on social media with using #ValueWater, thousands signed our petition to elected leaders calling for investment in water infrastructure, and our video highlighting the value of water was viewed thousands of times across social media. We’re hoping to make an even bigger impact in 2017!
Sign up to receive more information to participate in this national day of education and action.
