Scope and Contents note

The 1974-1977 records of the Pacific Northwest Pollution Control Association include office files, operation manuals, and records of annual meetings. The collection bulks largest from 1976-1977. The office files reflect the wide variety of correspondence, memoranda, and business records of the Association's daily operation. The correspondence includes letters to and from Association members and colleagues in industry, goverment, and the private sector. The collection contains administrative materials pertaining to committee work, public relations, research, conventions, meetings, directors, personnel, and the Water Pollution Control Federation. The third series, Annual Meeting Reports from 1974 and 1975, details the Association's conventions for those years. Those reports include agendas, workshops, panel discussions, lectures, addresses, and field trips in which delegates participated.
