The Automation Group, Inc is part of the Oregon Association of Water Utilities. OAWU is
a nonprofit, independent association of water and wastewater utilities.
OAWU was formed in 1977 to represent water utilities' interests in the
state legislature and provide onsite technical assistance. OAWU is a
state affiliate of the National Rural Water Association. NRWA is one of
America's largest and strongest voices for rural and small systems,
representing over 26,000 water and wastewater members.
OAWU currently has 455 regular members, 97 associate
members, and 153 individual members. The membership consists of public
and private water and wastewater systems such as municipalities,
associations, districts, mobile home parks, schools, industry, etc. OAWU
is governed by a board of 13 directors elected from the membership
serving three year terms.
Being part of the OAWU helps us to strengthen our relationships with municipalities, as well as keeping abreast of changes in the industry.
"I have worked with the Principles of The Automation Group in both Oregon and Northern California. These projects included creating VHF, UHF and Digital Radio SCADA Systems operating stand alone Centrals to Web-Based Servers. The key to success of any project is both teamwork and experience that you can depend on when everything is going well and more importantly, when issues and/or roadblocks present themselves. The Automation Group is an organization that has both the depth and experience that our company can depend on."
