Today is "Congressional Day" at Waterpower Week.

The National Hydropower Association (NHA) is excited to host Congressional leaders who are championing water power.

In the session, you'll hear from these Congressional leaders, who have the pulse on clean energy legislation in the 118th Congress.

In addition, NHA will present special recognition to these leaders - the Waterpower Legacy Award and the Legislator of the Year Award.

After that, you'll hear from leaders in the industry about the current state of the water power industry and where it's headed in the future. Get answers to these questions:
-- What are those most pressing challenges this industry is facing?
-- How can we, collectively, address these challenges?
