What is W2ASACT?

Water, Wastewater and Solid Waste Action Coordinating Team (W2ASACT)

W2ASACT is a group of stakeholders working on water, wastewater, and solid waste projects to improve our state's environmental infrastructure.  

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. We meet quarterly to discuss projects and group goals.  

These infrastructure projects have multiple and diverse funding sources.  WASACT is a tool to help people navigate the funding options and resources available to facilitate a successful project for all stakeholders involved.  This collaboration between multiple government agencies and other organizations is paramount to get these projects done efficiently and in a timely manner.
