Map showing where our PWS members are located.

The highest representation of members is currently in the United States, particularly bordering the larger coastal and fresh water bodies. For PWS, the highest concentrations are aggregated in just two states; Florida and Washington. Stand out regions include the West Coast, Great Lakes and the Atlantic Seaboard. Along the Gulf Coast, the state of Texas has the largest concentration of PWS. The story is similar for WPITs with the highest representation in Pennsylvania, Florida, Washington, and Virginia.
