Alabama & Mississippi's Premiere Water Advocacy Event


AL/MS Water was created to serve Alabama and Mississippi’s water professionals by providing a single conference where collaboration, education and leadership thrives. The initiative is to provide a central event for operators, equipment manufacturers, equipment representatives and service providers to cultivate new ideas to improve one of our greatest resources – water.


Numerous organizations exist within our states that promote clean water and the stewardship of our natural resources. The WEF and AWWA member organizations have collaborated over the course of the past decade to provide high-quality educational outreach and to develop programming that draws our members to recognize the value of the water community. Through the educational outreach originated a broader vision for the consolidation of annual conferences to a single joint annual meeting that achieves connectivity, content and execution by the partner associations. The AWWA and WEF organizations of Alabama and Mississippi continue to work toward additional partnerships and cooperation within the water community to maximize our effective outreach.

AL/MS Water (Water Joint Annual Meeting) is a centralized, annual event focused on education, training and networking for the water community throughout Alabama and Mississippi.  This event offers attendees the opportunity to network with leading water experts, stay informed on technology/regulation updates, and to advance stewardship in the water sector.

  • Promote the ‘OneWater’ approach
  • Develop a premier space for exhibition
  • Expand education
