New York Water Environmental Association

Bird's eye view of the world.

The New York Water Environment Association, Inc. (NYWEA) was founded in 1929 by professionals in the field of water quality as a nonprofit, educational organization. Association members helped lead the way toward existing state and national clean water programs. Today, the Association has more than 2,500 members of diverse backgrounds and specialties, but all are concerned and involved with protecting and enhancing our precious water resources.

The Manhattan College chapter of this organization hosts panel discussions, guest lectures and symposiums, as well as other events to increase students' awareness of environmental issues.

How to Join

NYWEA is open to all students. Sign up at the biannual activities and volunteer fair which happens at the start of each fall and spring semester, or contact the club directly at
