In 2002, a diverse group of agencies, individuals and wastewater industry professionals gathered to discuss their frustration with the lack of good public and local government education on rapidly advancing wastewater system technology.
Our organization was founded in 2003 as a 501(c)3 through the generous support of the Joyce Foundation. Our charge from Joyce? To engage in activities which create a climate of informed consent where wise choices can be proposed for appropriately sized wastewater systems which are cost effective to construct, operate and maintain while minimizing environmental footprint and sprawl. Quite simply we are in the sustainable wastewater education business. Quite simply we are WasteWater Education. Quite simply we advocate that water IS water..... not waste!
