The American Water Summit 2014 is the major business conference for the water sector in North America. It is attended annually by more than 300 senior executives from across the US including public and private utility leaders, consulting engineers, financiers, investors, regulators, state and federal government, technology providers, industrial end users and regional contractors. This year the theme was "Smashing Silos"; organizers brought the energy industry to the table to focus on the common problems and opportunities shared by these industries and the grounds for productive collaboration.
