Delta Water is a member of the Association of Water Technologies.  The Association of Water Technologies (AWT) is a non-profit trade organization representing hundreds of regional water treatment companies throughout the United States and internationally.  These full-service companies specialize in the application of chemical water treatments for industrial and commercial cooling and heating systems.

The Association was founded in 1985 by a small group of entrepreneurs who were concerned about the rising cost of product liability insurance for their industry.  AWT was formed as a means for distinguishing the water treatment industry, which was necessary in order to provide a basis for an industry-wide insurance program.  Over the past 15 years the Association has grown in both size and scope.

The main membership category, AWT Full Members, is comprised of independent water treatment companies specializing in chemical products with application in industrial boiler and cooling systems.  AWT represents over 500 of these regional water treatment companies not only throughout the United States, but also in Canada, Mexico, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Hong Kong, Argentina, and the Philippines.  In addition, AWT represents over 100 consultants, distributors and manufacturers providing a wide array of water treatment services, chemicals and equipment.  These suppliers support independent water treatment companies and their clients through research and development, special application, regulatory compliance, and other areas.

Since 1995, AWT has provided testing and background requirement checks toward achievement of CWT (Certified Water Technologist) designation.  CWT is the first independent certification of its kind in the industrial and commercial water treatment field and requires extensive knowledge of and experience in all aspects of water treatment.  The program continues today.
