TWUA Publications

In addition to publishing the monthly Texas Water Utilities Journal, TWUA also publishes excellent Water and Wastewater Operations Manuals, plus a series of Technical Assistance Publications (TAP's) - small and affordable pamphlets of information on a particular topic.

Operations Manuals
Please don't allow the very reasonable prices for the TWUA manuals mislead you. We are able to offer these quality publications at these rates only because of the use of non-compensated volunteer authors - experts actually working in today's water utilities industry. These manuals are used in colleges, universities and trade schools across the Nation and would be an excellent addition to your professional library.
