What We Do

The Automation Committee mandate is to support the advancement of the automation of processes associated with treatment, distribution, water quality and power management through sharing of knowledge via different stakeholders, and then presenting them to the industry.

Automation includes process control, SCADA, instrumentation, data collection and management, power distribution and management, security, safety systems, optimization and information technology.

Our Activities

Review of Conference Abstracts and Chairing of Papers

Every year, we will review and select abstracts for the Annual OWWA Conference.  We will chair and co-chair the Automation session during the conference and will promote the session to industry colleagues.


Every November the Automation Committee will present a one day seminar on automation.

Technical Discussions 

During each meeting, the Automation Committee will spend 30 minutes on a round table discussion on automation. For example, our first round table discussion will be “Applying Municipal Standards to Vendor Package Equipment”.  These discussions will form the basis for our annual seminar.

Publication of Articles

The Automation Committee will annually prepare an article related to automation for publication in the OWWA Pipeline.
