The Journal & Archives

The Journal of the New England Water Works Association is the oldest water works publication in the U.S., with the first issue published in September of 1886. 

The Journal of the New England Water Works Association will consider papers for publication that are pertinent to the drinking water field. These can include papers of general interest to the water works profession; papers from presentations made at a NEWWA event; or papers directly solicited from the editors and/or Program Committee. 

Having a paper published in the NEWWA Journal is a prestigious honor and an excellent way to be recognized for accomplishments, enhance your resume, and qualify for one of our awards for best written paper.
