AWWA was formed to “promote public health, safety, and welfare through the improvement of the quality and quantity of water.”
Today, more than a century later the Water Utility Council is “the voice of water” on water policy.
AWWA delivers sector’s knowledge and expertise to inform national decision makers and through AWWA’s sections to state capitals.
