NRWA adds Lifestyle Health Plans and IRIS Public Notification to Advantage Programs

DUNCAN, Okla. – The National Rural Water Association has added two new WaterPro Advantage programs for the benefit of NRWA and state association members. The first is Lifestyle Health Plans, which offer customized health solutions designed to improve employee health and wellness.

“One of the most common requests we receive is for affordable health insurance options,” said Sam Wade, NRWA CEO. “We are excited to announce the addition of Lifestyle Health Plans which offers unique health benefits designed to address the underlying causes of the rise in health care cost for both the employer and employee.  While not applicable to every system, it is an alternative for systems to address the cost and coverage offered to their employees.”

The second is Immediate Response Information System, a public notification system that includes text-messaging and recorded voice options.

“Notifying customers is a critical part of managing a utility,” Wade said. “This new system gives utilities the power to communicate with their customers through both voice and digital technology.”

These two new services join a growing list of WaterPro Advantage programs designed exclusively for rural and small water utilities. Contract your State Rural Water Association, visit or call 1-800-545-1054.
