Welcome to the Engineering Committee

The Pacific Northwest Section (PNWS) of the American Water Works Association (AWWA) plays an important role in promoting public awareness of water infrastructure and supporting the technical and facility management needs of its members throughout western Idaho, Oregon and Washington. An integral part of the PNWS-AWWA, the Engineering Committee (EC) focuses in terms of knowledge, practices, people and procedures on the advances in planning, design, and delivery of water supply, infrastructure and treatment projects. The EC aligns with the Engineering and Construction Division of the Technical and Education Council of AWWA.

In carrying out its mission, the EC concentrates on education, training, and promotion of engineering through:

  • Annual conference technical sessions
  • Annual conference, jointly sponsored, pre-conference work sessions
  • Annual Excellence in Engineering awards
  • Engineers Week activity participation
  • Technical presentation and training at subsection schools and short schools
  • Training sessions throughout the year
  • Conducting tours of water infrastructure and construction sites

RSVP to Avoid Corrosion

Feeling a little rusty on your corrosion knowledge? Please join us August 11th for a one day corrosion symposium lead by regional experts discussing corrosion mechanisms and corrosion protection methods for municipal infrastructure. People who might be interested in attending are owners, operators, and designers of municipal water and wastewater infrastructure, but the topics discussed are applicable to a wide range of professions. Around 0.5 CEU’s will be offered. Beverages, snacks, and lunch will be provided. Space is limited at the Tualatin Valley Water District’s office in Beaverton, Oregon. Registration is $130; details and a registration: Corrosion Control Symposium – August 11, 2022 (constantcontact.com). Email Taylor Stockton tstockton@rh2.com with questions. This training is a joint effort between AWWA and AMPP (Association for Materials Protection and Performance, formerly NACE).

Committee Meetings Schedule – New Day
