The Arizona Association of Women in Water & Agriculture (AAWWA) is designed to support, promote, celebrate and inspire women with careers and interest in water and agriculture through education, networking and fellowship.
We appreciate everyone for joining us for the first event of 2022, focusing on the Colorado River – the history and Law of the River, current hydrology and operations, impacts across the state, power impacts, and tools and solutions for addressing some of the challenges we face.
Held on Tuesday, May 24th from 9:30am-2:30pm, we would like to thank our Presenting Sponsor, Salt River Project (SRP) for hosting the AAWWA at the PERA Training & Conference Center.
We heard from a great line up of leading women in the water industry.
