clarifier1_cropped.jpgThe ISA Water/Wastewater Division (WWID) is a technical division of the International Society of Automation (ISA) that is focused on the challenges associated with instrumentation, automation and SCADA systems in the municipal water sector. This includes municipal drinking water, wastewater and stormwater applications.

Please visit our WWID Division website at www.isawaterwastewater.com

Our members include a wide range of professionals from municipalities, water utilities, sewerage districts, consultants, engineering firms, system integrators, construction firms, software vendors, distributors, and equipment manufacturers. The division maintains close ties with the American Water Works Association (AWWA) and Water Environment Federation (WEF) to service the needs of automation professionals who work in the municipal water sector.

Membership in the ISA Water/Wastewater Division is open to any ISA member who has an interest in the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of automation systems and related equipment in the water sector.  We have members from all over the world. Many leading members of the WWID are also involved the many facets of ISA including ISA standards, ISA conferences, and ISA publications, as well as being involved with other industry technical committees.  

We invite you to get involved with the WWID. Contact us for more information at www.isawaterwastewater.com/committee/


  • Sad News about Joe Provenzano

    Dear WWID Friends,
    It is with heavy heart that I share the news that our dear friend Joe Provenzano is no longer with us.   Joe, one of long-time volunteer leaders in our ISA water/wastewater division, passed away in his home in Naugatuck, Connecticut on Sept 28, 2022.   Joe had been involved with ISA for more than 50 years, and was for many years the program chair of our water/wastewater division and  ISA water/wastewater and automatic controls symposium.  Joe was a receipent of the ISA's society-level Enduring Service award in 2021. A biography of Joe and his many contributions to ISA will be posted shortly.  An obituary is available: Obituary | Joseph T. Provenzano of Southbury, Connecticut | Chase Parkway Memorial.   Thanks Joe for all the fun times and your many contributions - you will be missed.
  • ISA Division Excellence Award to ISA WWID

    I am happy to let you all know that our Division was conferred with the 2022 Division Excellence Award by ISA. I thank all Divisions volunteers for their years of effort and involvement in supporting our Division activities to provide value to our members worldwide. I also thank ISA staff and its committees for their recognition and support. This award will be provided to us during the ISA Annual Leadership Conference at Galveston (Nov 7-9, 2022). I hope to see many of you at this conference.
  • ISA WWID's MOUs with AWWA and WEF

    One of our important activities earlier this year was our establishment of Memorandum of Understanding with the American Water Works Association (AWWA) and the Water Environment Federation (WEF), to support their annual conferences. These are so critical for our Division as this collaboration allows us to establish and refine our automation goals as needed to resolve our industry's specific concerns. Hassan Ajami and I participated in AWWA's annual ACE22 conference at San Antonio, TX in June 2022, where we presented on ISA's latest standard under development - ISA112 SCADA Systems, and how it would help our Water Utilities in managing their infrastructure and operations efficiently.  The two of us, combined with Don Dickinson will also be having an Automation panel session at the upcoming WEFTEC 2022 conference, hosted by WEF, at New Orleans, LA in October 2022.
