About Us

Illinois Section AWWA provides resources for the management and advocacy of safe and sustainable water. It is a "total water" resource - from stormwater to potable water to wastewater, and is known as one of the model state water associations nationally. Established in 1909, the ISAWWA currently represents over 1,770 water utilities of all sizes. ISAWWA members are administrators, utility operators, professional engineers, contractors, manufacturers, scientists, academics, health professionals, regulators, and interested individuals. ISAWWA is a Section of the American Water Works Association that serves the water industry in the United States, Canada, and Mexico.

ISAWWA is proactive in advancing the technology, science, management, education, conservation, and government policies relative to the stewardship of water. It hosts a large, well-attended annual conference, called WATERCON, and over 100 timely and cost effective trainings, as well as mini-conferences, free webinars, e-learning technical sessions, and a resourceful website. ISAWWA educates the general public on the essential functions and importance of the water industry, the water cycle and water treatment, and promotes career paths in the water industry. It plays the important function of monitoring water industry standards and regulations for members.  Networking is important to members and a variety of opportunities support this benefit: member can provide and/or attend training, volunteer, serve in governance, and attend social events.
