About Us

The Maine Water Utilities Association (MWUA) is a non – profit membership organization which was organized in 1925. At that time a core group of water superintendents recognized the need to meet on a regular basis, share information and ideas and lend mutual support. That group met regularly and became increasingly involved in matters affecting water utilities. Today, the basic concept remains largely unchanged. MWUA is an advocate for the water supply profession. We share experiences at bimonthly meetings, sponsor training sessions for members and provide mutual support. The networking and interaction are of great benefit to system operators in providing water service, while complying with stringent state and federal regulations. In February of each year we hold a waterworks trade show in Portland, Maine which draws exhibitors from the United States and Canada and waterworks professionals from throughout the Northeast.

Mission Statement

The Mission of the Maine Water Utilities Association is to represent the water works professional membership in advocating safe drinking water through education, legislation, policy and networking.

Consistent with this mission, the Vision of the association is that it be the organization of choice for informing members and influencing policy makers, regulators and the media on issues regarding public water supply and water resources.


MWUA relies upon staff, consisting of an Executive Director and Executive Assistant, and a number of volunteer committees to accomplish its mission.
