About NC AWWA-WEA

Welcome to the web site of the North Carolina American Water Works Association and the North Carolina Water Environment Association (NC AWWA-WEA).  Formed in 1928, NC AWWA-WEA is a volunteer association operating jointly under one Board of Trustees as a Section of the American Water Works Association (AWWA) and a Member Association (MA) of the Water Environment Federation (WEF).

The NC AWWA-WEA is dedicated to providing water and wastewater education, training, and service in an effort to protect public health and the environment.  We have over 3,000 members in North Carolina representing municipal and private utilities, consulting engineering firms, government agencies, companies who provide equipment and supplies to the industry and representatives of academia who teach and conduct research in water and wastewater-related areas.

We are lucky to have an organization that is able to look at water quality issues from a broad perspective, realizing that water and wastewater issues go beyond the end of the pipe. We strive to fulfill our vision through the work of our committees and the events we organize
