It is important that water professionals stay apprised of the latest regulations and any proposed legislation that may impact how you do your job. The Association and the Michigan Section stay on top of the issues and provide updates as we can.

Utility members get special access to Utility Insider and other alerts from AWWA. Visit the Utility Insider archive on www.awwa.org to see what's been happening at the federal level.

The Section also periodically published Position Statements to help clarify the position the Section takes on particular issues.
