Message from the President

Welcome to the Spring Aquaduct and welcome to all our new members!  The 2012 Board is would like to remind members about our recruitment drive.  The member that recruits the most new members can have their dues waived for 2013 or have the option to receive a free NJ-AWRA polo.  See the Winter Aquaduct - Message from the President for complete details (http://www.nsawra.onefireplace.org/president_winter_2012).

NJ-AWRA just had its first joint meeting with the South Jersey Branch ASCE.  The event went very well and the presentation by NJDEP was very informative.  We hope to have a follow up presentation, possibly next year when more details on the new rules are available and with more specifics on when they will be implemented.  Thanks to all those that helped organize the event!  Now that we have had an excellent event in the South let us see what we can do in the North!

Other exciting news for 2012:

  • Soil Health Conference on May 30th at the Arts and Community Center at Ocean County College in Toms River.  Register today!
  • SAVE THE DATE!  The 8th Annual Water New Years Eve event will be held on Friday, September 28th.  Additional details to follow.
  • NJ-AWRA is partnering with NJAFM on their 8th Annual Conference on October 2-3 at the Palace at Somerset Park.  The Stormwater Committee is having a call on May 8th from 1-2 pm to discuss the sessions and panels they are working on for the Conference.
