 EXTON, Pa., Feb. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Paul Woodruff, chairman of Water Quality 2000 and president of Environmental Resources Management, Inc., and U.S. Sen. Bill Bradley (D-N.J.) will speak at a briefing on the need for an integrated national water policy.
 The briefing will be held Friday, Feb. 26, from 10 a.m. to noon in Room 366 of the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill, Washington.
 Water Quality 2000 is a coalition of industry, government, environmental, professional and academic groups devoted to development and implementation of a new national water resources policy. Water Quality 2000's Final Report, "A National Water Agenda for the 21st Century" (November 1992), advocates an integrated approach to protecting water resources that incorporates pollution prevention, increased individual and collective responsibility, and watershed-based planning and management.
 "The purpose of this and future briefings is to evaluate existing policies and identify alternatives for consideration by Congress and the new administration," said Woodruff.
 Speaking along with Woodruff will be Water Quality 2000 steering committee members Robert Adler, vice chairman and senior attorney with the Natural Resources Defense Council; Joe Mayhew, director of environmental programs for the Chemical Manufacturers Association; and Ken Kirk, executive director of the Association of Metropolitan Sewerage Agencies.
