Drinking Water Advisory Work Group (DWAWG)

Meeting schedules, agendas, and minutes from past meetings of this open-participation group, which meets quarterly to discuss compliance with state and federal drinking-water regulations and improving customer service.

The DWAWG was established in 1992 by the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission’s (TNRCC) Public Drinking Water Section. Based on input from the group, TCEQ Drinking Water Standards Section and Drinking Water Special Functions Section staff compiles agendas for each quarterly meeting. DWAWG provides the TCEQ with expanded knowledge and resources to help with existing and future drinking water issues.
