ACWA engages on an array of legislative and regulatory issues to advocate on behalf of its members and to promote a more reliable and sustainable water system.
The association also works hard to assist its members as they implement local resource programs and respond to challenges such as climate change.
To guide ACWA’s efforts on legislative and regulatory issues, ACWA’s Board of Directors has adopted Policy Principles  on many key topics.
A key part of advocacy is grassroots outreach. For 2013, ACWA has developed a Legislative Outreach Checklist  to help your agency prepare for a busy legislative year.
