The Ontario Water Works Association – A Section of AWWA, is a leader in the delivery of safe drinking water. OWWA, with the support of its parent organization, the American Water Works Association (AWWA), is at the forefront of research, technology and policy development with respect to safe, sufficient, and sustainable drinking water.

OWWA is a voluntary, not-for-profit association of more than 1,500 water industry professionals. The Association reflects the wide range of duties, responsibilities and interests of our members. OWWA has long been recognized as the authoritative ‘voice’ of the water industry. We are governed by a president, elected annually, and a board of directors with a prescribed list of responsibilities.

Our members are involved in all facets of the delivery of safe drinking water – from source to tap, and each year a few of our members are recognized for their outstanding service to OWWA and the drinking water industry.

We invite you to browse our website to gain further insight into OWWA and the delivery of our most precious resource – safe drinking water.
