Water, Wastewater and Solid Waste Action Coordinating Team (WWASACT)

treatment pond

In 1982, a group of professionals from state, federal, and non-profit organizations that finance, regulate, or provide technical assistance for community water and wastewater systems, decided to start meeting in order to coordinate and enhance their efforts. W2ASACT meets several times a year to find ways to improve our state's environmental infrastructure.
