Water and Energy Efficiency Committee

What We Do

The OWWA Water Efficiency Committee is dedicated to advancing smart water use through networking, education and advocacy.

To achieve this goal, we work to influence government policies and promote water-efficient technologies and practices.

WEC meets 4-6 times throughout the year and hosts a seminar, workshop or webinar each year.


The Committee (WEC) has produced three publications to assist Ontario municipalities in the preparation of water efficiency plans, reducing peak seasonal water demands and developing water efficiency programs.  These documents are available for free download:
