Who We Are

The Chesapeake Water Environment Association is dedicated to improving water quality and protecting the water environment in Delaware, Maryland, and the District of Columbia. The Association strives to do this through public education, the exchange of technical and scientific information among water quality professionals, the training of wastewater and water treatment plant operators, and by offering technical expertise and advice to the law-making and regulatory processes.


The CWEA is a Member Association
of the Water Environment Federation.

Involvement in CWEA's Committees which include:

Biosolids and Residuals Management: This is an area which is very much in the news today. Committee members arrange seminars and symposia.

Government Affairs: Most recently, this committee set up the Chesapeake Bay Program Ad Hoc Committee. This committee has been working with government entities; organizations whose sole focus is the Bay; and industry and agriculture interests whose activities impact the Bay.
