About AWWA’s Water Equation Philanthropy

Recognizing the need to provide continuing education for water operators and students to ensure the future workforce, AWWA founded Water Equation in 2015. At the same time, it entered into a partnership with Engineers without Borders–USA and American Society of Civil Engineers to create Community Engineering Corps with the goal of improving water infrastructure in underserved communities. Water Equation has adopted Community Engineering Corps as a funded program.
