In South Carolina, there is a community of professionals who protect our state's water environment so that this most precious resource can be preserved for generations to come. We are water distribution, collection and treatment professionals, engineers, regulators, and product suppliers.
The Water Environment Association of South Carolina serves more than 3,000 members across 10 districts throughout our state. We are also affiliated with the Water Environment Federation (WEF), which is composed of affiliates and members throughout the world. WEF is a not-for-profit technical and educational organization of 34,000 individual members and 75 affiliated Member Associations (like the WEASC) representing water quality professionals around the world. Since 1928, WEF and its members have protected public health and the environment. As a global water sector leader, WEF's mission is to connect water professionals; enrich the expertise of water professionals; increase the awareness of the impact and value of water; and provide a platform for water sector innovation. To learn more, visit www.wef.org.
Our purpose is to serve those whose vocation is the promotion, protection and preservation of the water environment. And, by extension, to serve all those who enjoy the waters of South Carolina for recreation or refreshment. The WEASC carries out a large part of it's mission through the work of its technical committees. If you are interested in getting involved with one of our committees, please complete the committee volunteer form and return it to the Association office.
