Water Industry Leaders Share Knowledge:
Over 550+ Presentations at AWWA’s ACE14

WASDA Members attended the AWWA Annual Conference & Exposition 2014 (ACE14) held at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center from June 8-12. The goal was to address timely topics and solutions for global water professionals. ACE is known to be the longest running water conference in the world and was attended and addressed by notable public figures such as former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani. At the Water Industry Luncheon, Louisville Cardinals Head Basketball coach Rick Pitino spoke of the importance and urgency to conserve and use water resources efficiently, saying “Each day is a gift, it’s what you do with that gift that matters…think of it as a one day contract.”
