Minnesota Wastewater Operators Association
Minnesota is recognized as a leader in environmental control and management. It is the association’s desire that we serve to help everyone do a better job in protecting our most valuable and renewable resource in the Land of 10,000 Lakes. Our goals are to inform and encourage others to take an active role in water quality issues and to support our members’ efforts in improving water quality.
The Minnesota Wastewater Operators Association (MWOA) was created in 1956. This organization shares information with members and nonmembers through conferences, training sessions, and section meetings. The MWOA is an organization of professional operators, laboratory technicians, regulatory agencies, collection system specialists, maintenance personnel, engineers, and marketing consultants from all areas of Minnesota. Every member has a significant role in the success of MWOA. This association also helps state, regional, and local agencies make decisions that have an environmental impact on everyone.
