The Water Council offers its members access to an unparalleled network of water industry thought leaders, policymakers and innovators aligned through one of the most influential freshwater technology hubs in the world.

As a non-profit, membership-based organization The Water Council (TWC) is committed to convening, connecting and showcasing its 200+ members from 20 U.S. states and 11 countries by providing a full range of business development services, networking opportunities throughout the year and opportunities to collaborate with a network of global water leaders.

“The Water Council gives form, function and alignment to its members like a riverbank: ever growing and changing, uniting smaller and larger, giving rise to a confluence of mighty ideas. Our membership has been and will continue to be essential to our company’s growth. We have participated in the Water Leaders Summit, exporting learning sessions, and have taken advantage of market research and consulting opportunities… [TWC] staff knows how to ‘connect the dots’ between organizations that can and will benefit from knowing each other.”
–Marianna DeMyer, CEO, Roving Blue
