The Swedish Water & Wastewater Association, SWWA, was set up by the municipalities in 1962 to assist with technical, economic and administrative issues and to represent the interests of the municipalities in negotiations with authorities and other organisations on regulations. Mattias and SWWA will work together to educate and raise awareness of the value of water and the need for long term sustainable solutions.
