The Eastern Water Quality Association is dedicated to bringing together industry professions for the exchange of ideas; the sharing of information and, for the development of a unified legislative voice. In fulfilling its mission to members, the goal of the association is to help members provide quality water by promoting industry best practices, developing educational programs and advancing business ethics and profitability.
The EWQA has seven major goals that we believe are the beneficial foundation for our members:
- 1. Help our customers get better, safer water
- 2. Exchange ideas and expertise within our membership
- 3. Promote high industry standards
- 4. Raise public awareness of quality drinking water practices
- 5. Increase professionalism & profitability of our members and the industry as a whole
- 6. Become the go-to source of education and certification for our members
- 7. Focus on ways to improve water quality through innovative treatment systems.
To engage in activities which best serve the interests of our members and the public; act as a resource for members, providing educational opportunities; create programs to educate members about community services; stimulate water quality awareness; encourage proper and ethical use of industry equipment, products and services; provide a legislative voice on industry issues; coordinate industry issues with WQA and engage in any proper/lawful activity in order to best serve the interests of our members and the public.
By joining EWQA and participating in its programs and activities, the water treatment professional builds a network of colleagues that will benefit both their business and personal professional life. Perhaps the greatest membership benefit of all is the face to face exchange of industry ideas and experiences.

What are EWQA members saying?
“My membership and association with EWQA has been very valuable to me and my business. Through attending the EWQA conferences, we have been able to keep up on current regulatory issues that impact our industry, get education for our service technicians, learn about new treatment technologies and obtain & maintain WQA certifications. I have also been able to form relationships with vendors and other dealers who are always willing to share their knowledge and experience. As a current board member, I am very excited about the direction the association is taking and the added value we will be bringing to our members in the future. Joining EWQA and getting involved is one of the best things you can do to stay connected and grow your business. I encourage you to take the leap and give it a try.”

“Through being an EWQA member, I secured service and installation work in my area for a national company. As jobs came up that were slightly out of my area, I got two other EWQA members involved with the same account. Knowing the members gave me the confidence to refer them, and being EWQA members showed me they were serious about the water treatment industry.”
