Industry News Piece – Water Organizations Receive Honor for Infrastructure Financing, Innovation
The American Water Works Association (AWWA), the Association of Metropolitan Water Agencies (AMWA) and the Water Environment Federation (WEF) received the 2015 The Power of A Gold Award in July from the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE).The award recipients coordinated staff and member expertise and grassroots lobbying efforts to raise awareness among policymakers and other imperative organizations about the Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Authority (WIFIA). President Obama signed the WIFIA bill in June 2014, establishing a program that fills a void in federal infrastructure financing policy and plans to address the critical conditions of America’s water and wastewater infrastructures.
