DUNCAN, Okla. – The National Rural Water Association opened registration, today, for the 2018 Rural Water Rally, which will be held Feb. 5-7 in Washington, D.C . Registration, housing and other rally information is available at https://nrwa.org/rally/.
The Rural Water Rally brings utility system representatives to Capitol Hill to support funding for infrastructure, training and technical assistance. The Rural Water Rally includes the Great American Water Taste Test, where drinking water from around the country is judged to determine the year’s best. All events are held at the Hyatt Regency Capitol Hill.
An early registration discount will be available until Jan. 18, though registration will be available on-site and online.
NRWA is also organizing letter-writing and social media campaigns for rural water supporters that cannot attend the rally in person. Utilities that have received assistance from rural water are encouraged to write a letter to their State Association detailing how the association has helped and the value they provide.
Rural water supporters can also participate in the social media campaign by posting their support for rural water on Facebook and Twitter with the hashtag #NRWArepresents during the rally.
