The National Rural Water Association is operating a Water Efficiency program in conjunction with the US Department of Agriculture. The program assists rural and small communities in lowering their energy consumption at their drinking water and wastewater utilities. Energy Efficiency Circuit Riders conduct energy assessment as part of the programs, which include evaluations of current energy usage, plans to lower energy costs, and available funding to mark energy improvements.
