About OWWA

The Ontario Water Works Association (OWWA) strives to be the leading resource dedicated to safe, sufficient and sustainable water from source to tap. It is a voluntary organization of water professionals. The OWWA provides leadership through education, innovation, continual improvements in customer relations, science and technology, and by participating in the development of government policy.

The goals of the OWWA are: to ensure a sustainable membership; to provide tailored and innovative education programs; to participate in the development of regulatory policy; to promote water stewardship to ensure safe, sufficient and sustainable drinking water in Ontario; and to strengthen its recognition as the leading authority on drinking water.

The OWWA is a section of the American Water Works Association (an organization of 57,000 members, founded in 1881). There are currently about 1600 OWWA members, representing research scientists, engineers, chemists, hydrogeologists, and managers and technicians employed at Ontario's municipal water systems.

The OWWA has more than 20 active committees dedicated to providing education, information, and leadership in water stewardship to its members, the public, and governments of all levels.
