National Rural Water Association through its State Rural Water affiliates is the nation’s largest water and wastewater utility membership association with over 31,000 members.
The National Rural Water Association’s two main annual events are the WaterPro Conference and the Rural Water Rally. The WaterPro Conference brings together water and wastewater utility systems – large and small, municipal and rural – for sessions in operations, management, boardsmanship and governance. NRWA hosts the Rural Water Rally in Washington, D.C. to support infrastructure funding for our members. This event includes the Great American Water Taste Test.
