World Water Day – Bringing People Together to Celebrate Knowledge and Good Beer

What a wonderful sight it was on March 22nd at Optimism Brewing as over 70 people split into teams in a (mostly friendly) battle of wits covering obscure waterways, water-based music, and what WSP stands for. We saw connections being made across the water industry and beyond that we rarely get to see outside of the PNCWA Annual Conference, all while raising more than $4,000 for Water For People. Thank you to our wonderful host, Optimism Brewing Company, and our generous Sponsors AECOM, Schnabel, WSP, Osborn Consulting, Stantec, T.Y. Lin, Carollo, and Consor, as well as our prize sponsors Rey Amargo Chocolate, Overcast Coffee and Elliott Bay Books.

Fundraiser for Water For People

Water For People

If you were unable to join the Run For Water at our recent PNCWA conference or are just itching to get another opportunity to sweat in support of Water For People, join us for the World Water Classic 6/60K! On average, women and girls in developing countries walk 6K each day to fetch water to use for drinking, bathing, and cooking. You can help change that by running or walking 6K, biking 60K, or getting creative! Sign up now to move any time between October 7-16 and join the PNCWA group during registration. We will be coordinating meetups so you can get together with your PNCWA colleagues. Keep an eye on the PNCWA LinkedIn page for more information, or click here to register today.

Fundraising for Water For People

The Water For People Committee would like to thank all those who participated in our conference fundraising event, Move For Water, and those who helped us “rinse a regulator” (and our Past President, Haley Falconer) at the Monday Night Networking Dunk Tank. Because of you, we were able to raise nearly $1,000 for Water For People! Also, sincere thank yous to Preservation Idaho, who provided a wonderful walking tour of Boise and made it easy and educational to get our steps in, and WaterReuse Pacific Northwest for their wonderful collaboration on the Dunk Tank.

Updates on Water For People, InFLOW, and Water Palooza

Water For People’s first World Water Classic 6k/60k was a huge success! Over the 10 day event, almost 800 participants ran, walked, or cycled close to 15,000 kilometers in 13 different countries. Together we raised nearly $40,000 to support Water For People in ending the average 6 kilometers that women and girls around the world walk each day to get water instead of going to school, working, or playing.

The PNCWA team had a great showing with 20 participants raising $1,240, and our own Casey Gish took 2nd in the 6k run! Thank you to everyone who participated and contributed.
