The 2011 Water Matters! Fly-In, held April 4-5 in Washington DC was a tremendous success! The Water Environment Federation (WEF) and the American Water Works Association (AWWA) joined together to speak with one voice regarding drinking water and wastewater issues. The 2011 Water Matters! Fly-In was attended by over 160 people, from each state, representing a cross-section of the entire water community. This event also coincided with the New England Water Environment Association’s (NEWEA) Congressional Visit and Legislative Breakfast, which brought out over 60 members alone to the event.

WEF released on May 5, the second issue of The Stormwater Report, a monthly electronic newsletter highlighting advanced practices, cutting-edge research, policy updates, and current events pertaining to stormwater. The current issue features an article on the city of Los Angeles’ Low Impact Development Ordinance. Other news includes the U.S. EPA’s release of a Green Infrastructure Strategic Agenda and the agency’s solicitation for comments on a new Construction General Permit, U.S. waters guidance document and healthy watersheds document.
With a newly formed Stormwater Coordinating Council, WEF will better integrate stormwater into the activities of its many committees, increasing the number of related WEF publications and events. In addition to several new publications and upcoming webcasts, WEF will host a stormwater utility seminar August 2, and there will be stormwater programming each day at WEFTEC® 2011, which will be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center Oct. 15 to 19.
