U.S. Senate Hearing Focuses on Water Infrastructure Needs, Local Role

The National Association of Counties representative testifies before the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works full committee hearing, “America’s Water Infrastructure Needs and Challenges.”

NACo Associate Legislative Director Julie Ufner testifies before the U.S. Senate’s Environment and Public Works Committee to discuss the role counties play in strengthening America’s water infrastructure, and the importance of the Water Resources Development Act to counties as they fulfill our water resources responsibilities.

MACo’s 2018 Summer Conference will focus on all the ways counties work with water. Mark your calendars and join us on August 15-18, 2018 to discuss “Water, Water, Everywhere.”

From the health of the Bay and Maryland’s waterways to the infrastructure, treatment, and regulations that ensure safe and healthy water flows through our pipes, county governments are keeping our residents afloat. Conference sessions will discuss the Bay, water infrastructure, watermen and oyster/fishery/habitat issues, floods and other natural disasters, and ways to put the wind back in the sails of a tight budget.
