Attendance at the annual KWEA/KsAWWA Joint Conference is a great opportunity to learn about new developments in our industry, new advances in equipment and controls, and recent regulatory updates, as well as a chance to network with peers and share successes and discuss solutions to the many challenges in our industry.

Professionals who may benefit the most from this conference include municipal agencies, including operators and managers, consultants, regulators, manufacturers and their representatives, industrial dischargers, contractors, and others seeking to understand the full picture of the latest developments and practical experiences in this field.
