North American Water Loss (NAWL) Conference

MISSION STATEMENT

The Committee’s mission is to build awareness and promote the benefits of water and energy efficiency for utilities and their customers in Wisconsin. The Committee functions as a clearinghouse for water providers, businesses, and the public on issues of water supply, source water quality, and best practices for water and energy efficiency. The Committee will focus primarily on water and energy efficiency practices that contribute to maintaining adequate water supplies, customer satisfaction, and healthy watersheds for future generations in the state of Wisconsin.

 

GOALS

  • Increase awareness of the benefits of water and energy efficiency for the water industry and the public in Wisconsin.
  • Provide WWA members with the tools to efficiently manage water resources to ensure that there is a sustainable supply of water to support economic growth in Wisconsin communities.
  • Collaborate with other organizations to promote water stewardship, including efforts related to stormwater and wastewater management, and to enhance water and energy efficient practices within the drinking water industry in Wisconsin. 

 

ACTIVITIES PLAN

  • Hold quarterly Committee Meetings to discuss water and energy efficiency needs for the Section and utility employees at large. Discuss existing practices and identify new developments in the field of water and energy efficiency. Coordinate, prepare and submit meeting minutes to the WWA Website following each meeting.
  • Initiate and support efforts to education WWA members, local officials, water industry leaders, and the public about the value of water and energy efficiency. Serve as a clearinghouse of information for WWA members in implementing water and energy efficiency programs.

This may include: · Partnering with other WWA Committees to include relevant topics at other seminars or webinars. · Partnering with the Illinois Section of AWWA to host joint webinars. · Hosting a stand-alone water and energy efficiency seminar, meeting, or other function.
