Pacific Northwest Clean Water Association (PNCWA) invites you to join us for the 88th Annual PNCWA Conference in Spokane, Washington, September 11-14, 2022. After a hiatus in 2020 due to the COVID 19 Pandemic, the conference returned in 2021 with both an in-person conference in Boise Idaho, as well as a virtual conference for those not able to travel.  This year we intend to build upon that success with continued opportunities for in-person learning and networking, combined with virtual content as a means of reaching the broadest possible audience as we strive to bring you the region's largest water quality educational event of its kind.

For 2022, we plan to “Be Like Water: Adapting with Change”, moving fluidly and flexibly past obstacles and adapting with purpose to the world around us.  One thing we’ve all learned over the last several years is how to be more flexible, to take challenges and make them opportunities, so we look for your help this year and in the years to come as we make this a reality for our clean water industry.

We are currently seeking abstracts for the technical programs, and while we have specific categories for submission, we encourage all topics, even those that do not fit cleanly into one of the current categories below.  Our industry is always changing, always evolving, and capturing new ideas and new technologies is at the core of our mission, so please submit an abstract, regardless of the topic.  Topics below with a asterisk represent topics that are new or returning topics that were not available in 2021.

Please also note that the intent is to have all of our speakers be in person for 2022.  This means that by submitting an abstract you are committing to in person attendance at this year’s Conference in Spokane, WA. 

Abstracts must be submitted online at by February 25, 2022
