The A.O. Smith Corporation and The Water Council of Milwaukee will host “Fostering Public-Private Innovations in the U.S. Water Market – Wisconsin’s Leadership” in Washington, D.C. on September 6.

The program will highlight the value and successes of public-private partnerships in the water industry, using Wisconsin as the model, and innovative technology solutions and management strategies that can be deployed across the U.S. to help address safe drinking water and infrastructure challenges.

This is the first time A.O. Smith and The Water Council have jointly brought an informative program to D.C. for policymakers highlighting the need to increase innovation and investments in water technologies, a topic that has been garnering increased attention and support in Milwaukee for nearly a decade through research, development and deployment of clean water technologies.

“I’ve seen firsthand the important work The Water Council and A.O. Smith are doing to help transform Milwaukee into the world hub for water innovation,” said U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin. “I’m happy to join this event at our nation’s capital to help share the tremendous progress we’ve made in Wisconsin to develop 21st century water technology that will make an important impact locally, nationally, and globally.”
