AEF’s Water Quality Committee focuses on informing our members on issues such as water quality standards, stormwater permitting, monitoring and clean sampling techniques, TMDLs and impaired water bodies, permitting limits, metals and minerals, reporting and enforcement initiatives. The Committee also plans and conducts an annual Water Regulations Update Seminar and a Water segment at the AEF’s Annual Convention & Trade Show designed to educate industries on their obligations in water pollution control. The Committee meets at the call of the Chair and is open to all AEF members in good standing. Member companies may have more than one representative on the Water Committee.
