NEWEA Annual Conference

NEWEA Annual Conference

The New England Water Environment Association (NEWEA) works to convene the brightest minds and the most innovative water quality solutions at its Annual Conference, which consistently attracts over 2000 engineers, consultants, scientists, operators, and students every year. 

Due to the current climate, NEWEA’s premier water quality technical conference will be taking place entirely virtually for the first time. This conference will provide technical sessions on the latest practices in the water quality industry, student presentations, and credits for operator and engineering recertification all without the time and expense required to travel to an in-person event. The interactive event platform allows for live Q&A; networking via one-on-one chat, video calls, and breakout rooms; and on-demand and live technical sessions.

Join our experts as they present on projects and approaches making a difference for communities across the region and country.
