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.

To make things easier, contact Walter Higgins, with EPA Region 3 in Philadelphia at 215-814-5476 or email and he’ll help facilitate the process. Yeah, he’s with the government and will help! Walter’s the soon to be Chair of the Training committee and has been involved with operator training and technical assistance for a handful of years now. Feel free to pick his brain about other possible energy saving projects, process control issues, nutrient removal, or EPA’s FREE GIS program.
