Technical Committee

The Technical Committee is made up of five subcommittees: Boiler, Cooling Water, Pretreatment, Special Projects, and Wastewater. These subcommittees generate quality technical documents for publication and distribution to AWT members and the industry. They also make recommendations to the board regarding positions on technical issues. The subcommittees assist various other committees and staff in reviewing technical literature for accuracy and completeness. The subcommittees also conduct technical needs analyses to identify technical issues of importance to AWT members.
