Be Heard: How You Can Support Rural Water

Attend the Rural Water Rally

The Rural Water Rally provides an opportunity for supporters of our industry to make their case directly to their elected officials. Rural Water Associations in each state schedule meetings with Representatives, Senators and their staff, so that they can share the Rural Water success story, answer questions and build important relationships. Attending the Rural Water Rally also provides a unique opportunity to meet with association leaders and watch the Great American Water Taste Test in person.

Utilities: Write a Letter

Our greatest tool is sharing the ways that Rural Water assists small utilities everyday 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 community. Utilities that cannot attend Rural Water Rally personally can still support Rural Water’s Efforts to promote funding, technical assistance and sensible regulation for small utilities.
