Membership in the Wet Weather Partnership

If your community is struggling with CSO or storm water control mandates, we urge you to join the proactive and highly effective members of the Wet Weather Partnership and play in a role in helping us to shape these programs so that wet weather controls will be affordable, cost-effective and produce meaningful benefits for your citizens.

A non-profit organization, the Partnership has four membership categories. Members of the Partnership are proactive and have been widely acknowledged for their leading CSO control efforts. For example, the vast majority of EPA National CSO award winners are Partnership members. Our municipal and corporate members have won dozens of national and statewide awards for CSO control programs.

Corporate Membership Categories

Our Corporate Membership categories are described below. Our current corporate members are generally acknowledged to be some of the leading CSO consultants in the country. Many of these consulting firms have supported the Partnership since the late 1980s. These firms are extremely knowledgeable about the origin of the Policy, the major debates over key issues that have arisen over the decade since the Policy was issues issued and the more recent questions about the effect of incorporating the Policy by reference into Section 402(q) of the Clean Water Act.

We thank our current corporate members for their support and leadership over the past 15 years and urge CSO communities to consider these firms as you strive to develop the best possible control program for your system.
