In response to waterborne diseases spreading prevalent at the time, the American Water Works Association was founded in 1881 to ensure safe and clean drinking water for everyone. Now over 130 years later it has grown into the largest nonprofit education and science centered association dedicated to WATER, our most important resource in the world. AWWA has roughly 50,000 members worldwide. AWWA & The California - Nevada Section of AWWA are two associations linked together by a common belief and a common passion - Safe and Reliable Drinking Water. Our passion is to support the drinking water professionals that provide water to millions of people throughout California and Nevada.
