Laws & Regs

In August, Amanda Waters, Water Environment Federation (WEF; Alexandria, Va.) government affairs counsel, participated in a panel discussion at the Association of Clean Water Administrators’ (ACWA; Washington, D.C.) annual meeting in Park City, Utah. The discussion, The CWA’s Next 40 Years: Achieving the Statue’s Goals and Results for All Americans, identified challenges to achieving water quality goals and portions of the the Clean Water Act that need to be updated.

During the water sector meeting, public and private sector leaders, including Utah Gov. Gary Herbert, EPA Deputy Administrator Bob Perciasepe, and EPA Office of Water Acting Assistant Administrator Nancy Stoner, gathered to discuss topics such as budget cuts, nutrient partnerships, permitting and enforcement issues, and stormwater rulemaking.
