Welcome to the Water Treatment Committee

The purpose of this committee is to gather and disseminate information and knowledge regarding the operation and design of water treatment facilities and the impact of the treatment facility operation on water quality in the distribution system. The committee’s focus is to cover two areas, water treatment operations aimed at the operators and how they can improve their operations and how engineers design and build treatment facilities.
