Happy AWWA member

“When I first started in this profession, the infrastructure at my employer was in serious need of repair and I had no idea how to address the problem. AWWA was there for me with the information and resources I needed. This was invaluable!”

- Chuck Van Der Kolk, Zeeland Board of Public Works
