The Norristown Municipal Waste Authority was formed in 1993 for the purpose of operating the municipality's sewer system.  The Authority is governed by a five member Board appointed by the Municipal Council.  The Authority owns and operates the wastewater treatment plant and the collection sewers of the Municipality.  The wastewater treatment facility is located at 368 East Washington Street, discharging effluent to the Schuylkill River, and serves both the Municipality and the Township of West Norriton.

While the Waste Authority members are appointed by the Municipal Council and their office are located on the second floor of Norristown Municipal Hall, the Norristown Municipal Waste Authority operates independently of the Municipality.
