NRWA Annual Conference

From October 1-3, 2013, the National Rural Water Association (NRWA) held its fall conference, entitled “H2O-XPO” in Louisville, KY.  The conference was attended by representatives of the various state rural water affiliates, along with representatives of other stakeholder organizations (including ASDWA).  Among the topics discussed were:  preparing to implement the Revised Total Coliform Rule; the energy-water nexus; customer questions about possible impacts of hydrofracturing; strategic planning for water systems; improving customer service and fostering conservation practices; water scarcity considerations; a Congressional outlook; and a regulatory update.  Next year’s fall conference will be held in Seattle and co-located with the Ground Water Protection Council’s conference.
