Our voice is YOUR voice!

Participate in the 2022 Rural Water Rally — even if you can’t be there in person.

Our greatest tool is communicating how Rural Water assists small utilities every day in the effort to supply their communities with clean, safe, affordable water. These stories are the proof that Rural Water operates effective programs that can reach every utility, from cities to the smallest and most rural communities.

Has Rural Water helped you? Whether or not you are attending the Rural Water Rally, your voice is important for supporting Rural Water’s Efforts to promote funding, technical assistance and sensible regulation for small utilities. We invite you to participate in the “Thanks to Rural Water” campaign by sending a brief video clip of your message. This collection of inspirational thoughts and experiences will be compiled for a special presentation during the opening session of the Rural Water Rally and select clips will be shared with our Rural Water social media community over the coming weeks.
