Welcome to GLWA Member Outreach Portal

The Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA) collaborates with its members on water and wastewater service activities through the One Water Partnership Member Outreach Program. Ten work groups are used to involve members in technical service and financial discussions that support decision-making for GLWA’s water and wastewater systems. Electronic communications and videos are also used to share additional key information with members. This portal serves as the information hub for members participating in work groups and following work group activities.


To learn more about the benefits of participating in the outreach program, the different work groups and how to get involved, review the documents below.
