Annual Joint Conference Training Opportunity
The Kansas Water Environment Association and the Kansas Section of the American Water Works Association join forces each and every year in late August for an annual conference, which offers 15+ hours of training over the course of three days. The conference draws over 800 professionals from surrounding areas and offers the most comprehensive look at the latest water and wastewater technology and topics of the day. With a hundred exhibits and as many presentations, this is an excellent venue for the operator who wants to be engaged.
