Interstate Waters Magazine

Reporting and Analysis

The Commission’s’s semi-annual print publication provides in-depth reporting and analysis of the water and wastewater issues that matter to our member states.

In 2017, the publication was redesigned as a magazine and renamed Interstate Waters.

Also in the magazine, NEIWPCC reflects on trends in the training of future wastewater-plant managers, and reports on the experience and sensibilities that Pete Lopez brings to his role as the administrator of EPA Region 2.

The issue also reports news from the seven NEIWPCC states and describes the status of federal issues of concern.
