The Minnesota Water
Quality Association (MWQA)

The Minnesota Water Quality Association is a statewide trade association representing the household, commercial and industrial water quality improvement industry. MWQA sees its role as a catalyst to constantly upgrade the standards of the water treatment industry and the qualifications of its members. It does this primarily through its continuing education, certification and ethics programs. MWQA members pledge to abide by the associations’ strict industry Code of Ethics.

The MWQA assists consumers by providing information about water quality alternatives. Consumer questions are answered by the MWQA office daily. In addition, educational brochures and pamphlets are available along with a list of MWQA members throughout the state.

If you are a consumer looking to purchase a water conditioning system, contact the MWQA for information about different types of systems. And remember to utilize MWQA members when making your purchase or rental decision.
