TOWA represents Installers, Service Providers, Pumpers, Designers, Engineers, Regulators, Equipment Manufacturers and Distributors throughout the State of Texas. It is the mission of TOWA to elevate the professionalism in the field of Wastewater Treatment by protecting Public Health and the Environment.
To accomplish this mission, TOWA provides our own continuing educational courses, The Basic Maintenance Provider Course and Advanced Maintenance Provider Course. TOWA also hosts the Texas Onsite Wastewater Annual Conference in Waco. TOWA is active in legislative activities and represents the needs of their members through the rules making process of the TCEQ. TOWA was well represented on the 15 member Rules Advisory Committee appointed by TCEQ. There were eight TOWA members, including four TOWA Past Presidents appointed. Unfortunately TCEQ did not adopt many of the changes that were recommended by the committee. This was however a step in the right direction by TCEQ. It demonstrated that TCEQ recognizes that TOWA representation adds the needed expertise to help guide the rule making process.
TOWA has employed the services of Mr. Tim Taylor as Executive Director. Mr. Taylor has 30 years experience in the wastewater field and holds the Licenses of Installer I and II, Site Evaluator, Maintenance Provider and is a Registered Sanitarian. He has worked as an Regulator, Installer, Designer and a Representative of the Manufacturing Community.
TOWA also has a very active Board of Directors that is working to meet the needs of our membership. These Board Members represent a wide cross section of our industry (Installers, Maintenance Providers, Pumpers, Designers, Precasters, Regulators and Manufactures). They also come from all across the State. This Board has worked tirelessly, without compensation, to bring about changes in TCEQ Rules which will save TOWA members money and time. If you have any questions, you can click on the Board of directors link to contact each of the directors individually or you can e-mail the entire board at: txowa@txowa.
