Welcome to the OWWA Publications Committee page
What We Do
The primary responsibility of our committee is the planning and publishing of the OWWA/OMWA/OWWEA quarterly magazine—the Ontario Pipeline.
There are four issues of Pipeline each year—Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall. The magazine is one of the many benefits of membership in OWWA!
We actively work to reinforce OWWA’s strategic goal of being “Ontario’s Leading Resource on Safe Drinking Water.”
Who We Are
Our committee is made up of water industry professionals who are interested in telling the many-faceted story of drinking water, and keeping the membership abreast of news, issues and trends in the drinking water industry.

The Committee meets once or possibly twice, usually by teleconference, prior to each issue of the Pipeline to develop content. Editorial review (proofing) is done through electronic distribution of the draft publications.
We try to meet once a year in person to exchange ideas. The Chair also attends regular C-PAC meetings.
