Water Professionals Appreciation Week is intended to highlight the important role of water industry professionals and local public water agencies in ensuring safe and reliable water, wastewater, and recycled water in California.
Water Professionals Appreciation Week begins on the first Saturday of October and ends on the Sunday of the following weekend each year. This timeframe was specifically chosen to allow for two available weekends to host related activities and events. This year’s Water Professionals Appreciation Week runs from Oct. 7-15.
Water Professionals Appreciation Week was established by Senate Concurrent Resolution (SCR) 80, approved by the Legislature on Sept. 13, 2017. The resolution, authored by Sen. Bill Dodd (D-Napa), was sponsored by an ACWA-led coalition that includes WateReuse California, California Municipal Utilities Association, California Association of Sanitation Agencies and California Water Association. The California Water Environment Association also is a partner in the effort.
