Welcome to the Eastern Pennsylvania Water Pollution Control Operators Association website. Even after 75 years, we are still an active and vibrant organization meeting the networking and training needs of wastewater operators in the eastern half of Pennsylvania.
The purpose of the Association is to advance knowledge and to encourage the exchange of information for the betterment of our communities. We keep our members informed on important issues and provide many PA DEP approved continuing education opportunities.
Clean water doesn’t just happen. There are many professionals including treatment plant operators, engineers, scientists, regulators, chemists, mechanics, electricians, and biologists behind the scenes that work and worry about this mission every day.

Notice to POTWs Regarding Annual Biosolids Reports
EPA Region III has stopped receiving annual biosolids reports (“503 reports”) and has stopped sending out the reporting forms. Even if you have not received a reporting form, your annual report is still due by February 19.
Annual 503 Reports are to be submitted to the following address. Note that reports are not to be submitted to Region III as in the past.
Region 7 has indicated that you may submit the required information in any format. It is recommended that you use the format of past reports and you may want to use the forms used in the past, correcting the Reporting Year.
