American Water Resources Association

About Us


Who we are:

We are the Philadelphia Section of the American Water Resources Association (AWRA-Philadelphia).  

Founded in 1964, the American Water Resources Association is a non-profit professional association dedicated to the advancement of men and women in water resources management, research, and education. AWRA’s membership is multidisciplinary; its diversity is its hallmark. It is the professional home of a wide variety of water resources experts including engineers, educators, foresters, biologists, ecologists, geographers, managers, regulators, hydrologists and attorneys.

What we do:

The Philadelphia Metropolitan Area Section, founded in the summer of 2000, meets regularly on the second Wednesday of every month (excluding December, July, and August) at a location in downtown Philadelphia convenient to public transportation. We strive to serve as a unique forum for information sharing/exchange among water professionals and others interested in water resources management issues of importance to our metropolitan urban area.  We conduct monthly, interactive lunchtime meetings featuring a guest speaker addressing a water resources management/usage topic of local interest. We welcome meeting participation by anyone interested in local water resources issues.

Anyone may join the organization. Membership is not required to attend the monthly lunchtime meetings. Membership dues help us defray the cost of postage, photocopying, postal box fees, and other expenses typically incurred by this type of organization.

Our Mission:
To serve as local forum for information exchange among water resources professionals and others interested in water resources management issues specific to our metropolitan urban area.

The objectives of this section are to provide a forum in which persons interested in water resources research, management, and education can meet, discuss and exchange ideas pertaining to all aspects of water resources important to the Philadelphia Metropolitan Area, and to support the mission of the AWRA.
