Water Utility Council

"The Water Utility Council (WUC) of the Florida Section of the American Water Works Association is recognized as the authoritative resource for knowledge, information and advocacy to improve the quality and supply of drinking water. Its mission is to develop action programs to initiate, evaluate, respond and comment on legislative, regulatory and other matters directly affecting water utilities in Florida. I hope you find our webpage both informative and user friendly. Please visit us often."
 

Sincerely,


Lisa Wilson-Davis

The Water Utility Council consists of utilities providing drinking water to over 21,312,000 residents of Florida. The Water Utility Council membership covers the entire state: from small water utilities serving a few hundred customers to those serving over a million customers. While membership in the Water Utility Council is separate from that of the Section, it is available to all utilities and associated companies with an interest in the legislative and regulatory issues facing the water industry.

The Water Utility Council takes an active role in assisting the Section to meet the challenges facing the water supply industry. A key element of the Section's strategic plan is the increase its involvement, credibility and effectiveness with legislators and regulatory agencies. To meet this objective, the Water Utility Council will continue to:

  • Expand its lobbying efforts.

  • Develop effective alliances with other organizations.

  • Develop legislative and regulatory policies that clearly define positions on specific legislative and/or regulatory issues.
