DWA - German Association for Water, Wastewater and Waste
Experience and competence in wastewater treatment
DWA - these three letters stand for the experience and competence of its members - in wastewater treatment plants, in planning and production as well as in research and administration.
Already for 60 years the DWA has advocated the development of a secure and sustainable water industry. As politically and economically independent organisation it works in the specialist fields of water management, wastewater, waste and the protection of soil.
In Europe, the DWA is one of the associations with the strongest membership in this area and, through its specialist expertis, holds a special position with regard to the setting of rules and standards, professional training and information to the public. The 14,000 members represent specialists and management from municipalities, universities, engineer offices, authorities and businesses.
The emphasis of the DWA work lies in the elaboration and updating of the set of rules and standards as well as collaboration with the production of standard specifications at national and international level. To this belong not only the technical-scientific subjects but also the economic and legal concerns of environmental protection and pollution control.
