ABOUT US

Purpose

 

To provide leadership in promoting the collective interests of member Ohio public wastewater utilities through education, communication and advocacy on water quality and related issues directly affecting Ohio's water resources and the ability of member agencies to safely and efficiently collect, treat and process wastewater in their communities.

History

 

AOMWA and its members are dedicated to protecting public health and the environment through common sense initiatives validated by sound science and good public policy.  It is with that motivation that several directors of Ohio wastewater utilities began to meet in the late 1990s to discuss common concerns and how they could combine their efforts to be a stronger voice. The Association was incorporated in 2001 by a handful of larger Ohio communities, including all of the members that make up the Board today.

Governance

 

AOMWA is a non-profit corporation governed by a board of five (5) directors elected by voting representatives of members of the Association at its annual meeting.  The Directors are elected for the term of one (1) year and may be reelected.  The Directors are responsible for the management and control of the affairs, funds and property of the Association.  At the annual meeting, the newly elected Directors elect a President, Vice President, and Secretary/Treasurer for a one (1) year term.

Management

 

AOMWA has engaged the firm of Squire Patton Boggs LLP to provide general management functions and to support its advocacy efforts on regulatory and legislative developments affecting its members.
