AWWA New Jersey Section ~ A Better World Through Better Water

The New Jersey Section of the American Water Works Association (AWWA NJ) is dedicated to providing solutions to effectively manage water, the world's most important resource. AWWA NJ is proactive and passionate about water! We work to advance technology, science, proper management and government policies relative to the stewardship of water. AWWA NJ is the recognized resource for information and guidance for local and state government, water utilities, and the general public.

Dear Members, Friends, and Colleagues:

This year to date, and especially the last few months, have brought significant challenges for us to face. The recent tragic death of George Floyd and the subsequent outpouring of reactions have elevated difficult issues to our daily conversations.

New Jersey, like many other states, is an incredibly diverse place, and we at the AWWA New Jersey Section have always been proud that we represent unique communities filled with people of all colors, races, religions, sexual orientations, ethnicities, educational, and socio-economic backgrounds. We believe that our Section, our water community, should be a place where all people feel included and welcome. We believe our differences make us stronger.  We also believe that what’s happening right now is not a political issue or a racial issue – but a human issue.

The AWWA New Jersey Section echoes the sentiments expressed recently by the Minnesota Section and all of the American Water Works Association (AWWA), that “…We realize this is a significant event in Minnesota, throughout North America and beyond, and this injustice affects us all deeply. AWWA is committed to public health, safety and welfare, and these core principles extend beyond just drinking water and to the health and wellbeing of the communities we serve. We know many of our members are tired and anxious in this time of compounded crisis, and we offer our support and compassion to you. AWWA is committed to engaging our workforce to promote principles of diversity and inclusion to better reflect the communities we serve. We welcome your thoughts on what we can do together to help heal division and work toward a more just society, in the water profession and in our communities.”

If you would like to reach out to us, we are here. Be well, be safe, be kind to one another.

Sincerely,

Alexandra F. Wells, AWWA NJ Section Chair
Nicole E. Brown, AWWA NJ Membership Services Chair
