COLE Publishing, established in 1979 in the heart of Wisconsin’s northwoods, has grown to become North America’s largest publisher of print, web and trade shows serving the water and wastewater industries. Our pride and success stem from the personal relationships we’ve forged and maintained over nearly forty years of working with our loyal friends and colleagues in the business.


As our company name declares, we've been magazine publishers since 1979. Our offerings have grown over the past 30 plus years, but the foundation of our business has always been the same – recognizing the under-appreciated and often overlooked people who provide services for and/or maintain our water and wastewater infrastructures.

To complement our magazines, we have a full range of digital offerings – including news, equipment, directories and more. We've been developing and delivering content online since 1996. I guess that kind of makes us pioneers by Internet standards – then again, we believe in leading, not following.
