The OWWA’s vision is to be the leading resource for Ontario’s water.
Who we are
The Ontario Water Works Association (OWWA) is a voluntary, not-for-profit organization of water professionals, dedicated to protecting public health through the delivery of safe, sufficient, and sustainable drinking water in Ontario.
OWWA has more than 1400 members including:
- Municipal water system managers and operators
- Consulting engineers
- Equipment manufacturers and suppliers
- Research scientists
We are a Section of the American Water Works Association (AWWA), which has more than 50,000 members worldwide.
What we do
We provide leadership in water management through education; innovation; continual improvements in customer relations, science, and technology; and participating in the development of government policy.
To do this, we have 17 volunteer committees dedicated to providing education, information, advocacy, and leadership in water stewardship to its members, the general public, and all levels of government.
OWWA believes in achieving consumer confidence in drinking water through ongoing public involvement in planning, policy development, regulatory, and quality issues regarding safe drinking water.

OWWA is guided by its Strategic Plan, which is formally reviewed every five years. The current plan (2015-2020) can be found here.
