We are proud to sponsor and participate in the 15th consecutive Missouri AWWA & MWEA Joint Annual Conference. We have a record number of speakers this year – 17 in total! We look forward to seeing you at our presentations.

Water For People is an international humanitarian organization that supports the development of locally sustainable drinking water resources, sanitation facilities, and health and hygiene education programs in underdeveloped and economically-challenged countries. MWEA and AWWA began fundraising efforts for WFP in 2003. HDR encourages the company and employees to support the efforts of both MWEA and AWWA by participating in the WFP sponsorship opportunities available during the MWEA/AWWA Joint Annual Meeting.
