What We Do
The Distribution Committee assembles and disseminates information on the design, engineering, construction, operation, and maintenance of water distribution systems.
- Reviews applicable provincial and federal regulations and makes formal comments in liaison with other OWWA committees
- Disseminates information to operators, engineers, management, consultants, and academics through workshops and sessions at the OWWA Annual Conference and Fall Distribution Workshop
- Prepares a minimum of two distribution articles per year for publication in Pipeline
Who We Are
The Distribution Committee maintains an active membership from core water distribution areas, particularly operations and maintenance. The Committee includes representatives from large and small water utilities, as well as members from operating authorities, consulting firms, equipment suppliers, regulatory agencies, and academic institutions.
