For the first time in three years, the Choose Clean Water Conference is gathering in-person! Join us May 25-26 in Richmond, Virginia!

  • What: 2022 Choose Clean Water Conference
  • When: Wednesday, May 25—Thursday, May 26
  • Where: Omni Hotel, Richmond, VA

We are excited to explore our theme of Revive. Restore. Reimagine.—reviving the energy of our Coalition, strengthening our resolve to restore our waterways, and reimagining our movement. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the members of the Coalition have demonstrated remarkable resilience in moving the Bay restoration effort forward despite unprecedented circumstances. This conference seeks to not only reenergize our members by offering some much-needed face-time, but also provide a platform for discovering new tools and resources to meet our clean water goals and a space for reflection and inspiration as we seek to center our work on principles of equity and justice.

This year’s conference will feature all the things we enjoyed at past conferences like field trips, networking opportunities, and our evening reception and dinner, but a few things will look different this year. Notably, we are limiting our in-person attendance to 200 people to provide adequate space for social distancing. With this hard cap, don’t hesitate—REGISTER TODAY!

We are going above and beyond to create a safe and healthy environment for those that choose to join us in Richmond. Of note, is we are requiring full vaccination against COVID-19 to attend, wearing masks indoors, and receiving a negative COVID test before attending (we will provide the test free of charge to registrants). Check out our health and safety protocols as well as our FAQ page to learn more. Of course, if you have any additional questions we haven’t addressed, please contact Drew Robinson at

For those who are not ready to return to in-person events, we will offer a virtual option at a discounted rate, allowing you to join several of our plenary and breakout sessions.

Whether in Richmond or virtually, we hope to see you there!
