The association comprises 29 incorporated municipalities, in which water supply is provided from the spring to the tap, i.e. to the final consumer. It is a public corporation with its headquarters in Bad Vöslau.The plenary session, the board and the chair are the institution of WWA.The members of the plenary session are the mayors of the incorporated municipalities.The board consists of eleven members. These are the chair, the deputy chair, and nine further members. They are elected  by the plenary session. The chair is the association´s public representative.

The internal Management is subject to director and deputy director.

The WWA is completely self-sufficient and does not receive any subsidies whatever. No dividends accrue to the municipalities, profits remain with the association and are set up as reserve funds for future investments. All operating expenditures, amortization charges, loan repayment, the build-up of reserves, etc., are exclusively financed out of revenues. These arise from water bills, access charges and fees for water metres.

The association supplies a total of about 37.000 households with water, which corresponds to some 130.000 individuals.
