Groundwater professionals are in
Washington, D.C., this week to support the issues and policies critical to the
protection, use, and management of groundwater.
With no better way to educate decision-makers than in person, the
attendees of the NGWA Groundwater Fly-In will be in Capitol Hill offices making
their congressional delegation aware of issues impacting all groundwater
professions. They are primarily focusing on urging Congress to pass these three issues:
This year they are being joined by delegations
from the Irrigation Association and the Water Quality Association. NGWA hopes
that by combining with these other organizations, we will not only broaden our
footprint on Capitol Hill, but will also provide new opportunities to work
together toward shared objectives.
On March 7, attendees from NGWA, IA, and WQA will hear from leaders in
Washington, D.C., as they discuss the congressional agenda, the Trump
administration, and the secrets to a great meeting on Capitol Hill. Each group
will then break away to prepare for their respective March 8 congressional
meetings — while the organizations share goals and objectives, meetings on
Capitol Hill will still be specific to each organization. Following the
breakaway session on March 7, NGWA, IA, and WQA will reunite in the evening for
a networking reception.
