2022 Water Professionals Conference

This year’s Kentucky Tennessee Water Professionals Conference (KY/TN WPC) will take place July 17-20 at the Central Bank Center in Lexington, Kentucky. After attending last year’s event in Chattanooga, SSR is thrilled to once again see many of our clients, friends, and industry partners.

Hosted by the Clean Water Professionals of Kentucky & Tennessee (CWP-KT) and the Kentucky/Tennessee Section of the American Water Works Association (KY/TN Section AWWA), KY/TN WPC provides networking opportunities, engaging technical programming, and innovative equipment exhibitions for attendees and exhibitors in the water sector. Attended by over 1,700 professionals from hundreds of different companies, utilities, and organizations, the conference is a common venue in which to learn, share, and understand collaborative solutions to water sector challenges.

SSR is a long standing supporter of KY/TN WPC, and 2022 is no different. Our involvement with this years conference includes technical sessions, planning, and hospitality events.
