2021 AWPA

Book of Standards

Did you know that most of the funding for AWPA’s standards development process comes from the sale of the AWPA Book of Standards?  Every treating plant, laboratory, specifier, and inspector should have a current edition on-hand, so please be sure to purchase updated copies each year to help AWPA cover the cost of standards development.  If you don’t have the 2021 edition, your standards are already outdated!  This edition is available as a hefty 684-page printed book, a searchable read-only USB drive, or a printed book/USB combination.

To order online, visit the AWPA online store – please note that AWPA members must log in to the store to obtain discounted member pricing. If you prefer to order by mail or fax, a form may be downloaded by clicking this link.
