Eastern Area

Welcome to the Eastern Area of the Institute of Water!

Eastern Area

We are one of eight Institute of Water area committees. We are all volunteers who work in the water sector.


We use our professional experience to develop events and activities to support IWater members in Eastern Area; helping them to do their day jobs, advocate for the sector and improve the environment and lives of their communities.


Anyone who works in the sector is welcome to join. Any of our committee members would be happy to talk to you about the benefits of getting involved with IWater.


Our Committee

We have a range of annual activities including our President’s Day, a range of different site tours and we often run informative webinars for all IWater members to join.


We’re friendly, open and we encourage people to get involved. If you have any ideas for events or just want to chat about all things IWater, contact us!
