About CWEA

The membership is composed of professionals who operate and maintain wastewater treatment plants and collection systems; educators; engineers; scientists; designers, manufactures and representative of wastewater treatment equipment; and members of local, state and federal governments. Student memberships are available to those in college who plan to follow a career in water pollution control.

The Chesapeake Water Environment Association was originally formed by Abel Wolman in 1927 as The Maryland Water and Sewerage Association (MWSA). In 1928 MWSA affiliated with other associations to form the Federation of Sewage Works Association (FSWA). The District of Columbia was added in 1936 to MWSA's membership area.

In 1962 the name was changed from MSWA to Maryland-Delaware Water and Pollution Control Association (MDWPCA) when the FSWA changed its name to Water Pollution Control Federation (WPCF). In 1968 MDWPCA was actually disbanded and the Chesapeake Water Control Association (CWCA) was formed. At the same time the former association was continued as the Water and Waste Operators Association of Maryland, Delaware and District of Columbia (WWOA).

We have enjoyed a continuous close partnership with WWOA from that time through the present. In 1991 the national WPCF became the current Water Environment Federation (WEF) and CWCA adopted its current name the Chesapeake Water Environment Association (CWEA).
