The purpose of the FWPCOA is to protect the health of the citizens & preserve the natural resources We accomplish this by advancing the professional status of water and wastewater operators, providing a licensing system, and arranging training programs. The association works in cooperation with the Florida Section of the American Water Works Association (FS/AWWA), the Florida Water Environment Association (FWEA), the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP), the Florida Department of Health and the Florida Educational System.
