Enhance the knowledge and abilities of Pennsylvania's water quality professionals, promote sound sustainable water policies, and promote public awareness of the need to protect water resources.
The Pennsylvania Water Environment Association (PWEA) was founded in 1928. PWEA is a PaDEP accredited training provider and offers training and continuing education opportunities to members and non-members who find it necessary to maintain a water or wastewater license. PWEA’s membership of water quality professionals includes operators, facility operations/maintenance personnel, facility supervisors/managers, laboratory personnel, engineers, municipal administration/ officials, government regulators, manufacturers, students and academia. The PWEA publishes the Keystone Water Quality Manager, a quarterly technical publication containing legislative updates, design & process operations articles, problem-solving case histories, and advance notice of continuing education.
Since its beginning, the Pennsylvania Water Environment Association has worked hard to accomplish its goal to be the leading organization in Pennsylvania to actively advance the education and information for the preservation, protection, and improvement of water resources.
