The Water Management Society

The Water Management Society (WMSoc) is a not-for-profit membership organisation that has been providing practical and technical training solutions to individuals and companies within the water management industry for over 40 years. Our expertise in Legionella awareness, Legionella and Water Hygiene training enables us to give the most up-to-date instruction on how to prevent Legionnaires’ and other waterborne diseases within various water systems, including cooling towers.

By gathering expertise from every sector of the industry, the WMSoc can offer informed and professional assistance in all matters relating to the responsible management of water in industry and commerce. We achieve this through training courses, events, publications and journals, and in addition to these, our Midlands based offices accommodate a unique, on-site Practical Training Area for hands-on experience.

Our members come from a wide range of disciplines including water suppliers, scientists, engineers, manufacturers, consultants and facilities managers. Applications are welcomed from those within the relevant industries both in the UK and overseas.

Being a WMSoc member gives you access to a wide range of resources and connects you with other professionals and regulatory bodies within the water management industry.
