New for 2019, the Pacific Northwest Section of the American Water Works Association has adopted a Division structure. What does this mean? It means that all committees are now structured under a Division, which is spearheaded by a member of the PNWS-AWWA Board of Trustees. Divisions provide an opportunity for like minded committees to partner more closely on training opportunities.

Below is a list of Divisions and the Trustee liaison to that division.
