About Us

The Association of State Drinking Water Administrators (ASDWA) is the professional Association serving state drinking water programs. Formed in 1984 to address a growing need for state administrators to have national representation, ASDWA has become a respected voice for state primacy agents with Congress, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and other professional organizations. ASDWA’s purpose is to:

  • Support states in their efforts to protect public health through the provision of safe drinking water;
  • Collect and make information accessible to all state program administrators to assist them in fulfilling their duties;
  • Encourage the exchange of experiences and information among state drinking water programs;
  • Promote responsible and feasible drinking water program requirements at the state and Federal levels; and
  • Provide advice, counsel, and expertise to organizations and entities having an interest in drinking water, including Congress, U.S. EPA, and other Federal, state, and local organizations.

ASDWA members are the drinking water program administrators in the 50 states, the five territories, the Navajo Nation, and the District of Columbia. (15 of the 50 state drinking water programs are located in state departments of health, 32 are located in state departments of the environment or natural resources, and 3 are in mixed departments of health and environment.)
