About AWW&WEA

Since 1931 the common goal of the members of the Arkansas Water Works and Water Environment Association has been to provide clean water. The organization hosts an annual conference for those actively engaged in the design, management, operation and control of water works systems. For 82 years, attendees have considered the AWW&WEA Annual Conference the premier event for information management in the water and wastewater industry.

No matter what your interest is within the water industry, AWW&WEA has information and event opportunities to fit your needs. Our organization's educational programs set the industry standard in continuing education and cover the full spectrum of relevant, leading-edge water industry topics. They also provide attendees with valuable opportunities to meet, learn, and network with other water professionals from throughout the state.

History of AWW&WEA

The roots of the AWW&WEA were formed in 1931 when a group of 47 met in Fayetteville, Arkansas for two days in February to form the First Annual Arkansas Water Works Conference. It was during that time that the group would decide to form a permanent organization for the purpose of holding annual conferences for those actively engaged in the design, management, operation and control of water works systems.
