Technical Practice Committee


More than 600 WEF members serve as authors and reviewers on Technical Practice Committee (TPC) Task Forces, developing Manuals of Practice and other technical publications on industrial and hazardous wastes, municipal topics, residuals, and water quality and ecology topics. The TPC uses a consensus review procedure to develop technical publications that reflect the state of industry practice.

New Task Forces are created throughout the year and are advertised in WEF Highlights and through direct solicitations to WEF’s technical committees. For information regarding current TPC activities, contact Lorna Ernst, WEF Technical Publications Manager at
