Our event offers great networking and educational opportunities for water and wastewater professionals - in addition to earning up to 10 contact hours for Water & Wastewater licenses. The Spring Conference also provides vendors the perfect venue to showcase their products and services to a variety of utility professionals from operations specialist to managers and board / council members.
