Letter from Administrator
The Hawai'i Rural Water Association
In 1976, eight states formed the National Rural Water Association (NRWA) to represent rural and small community water and wastewater systems in the halls of Congress to ensure the availability of funding and technical resources.
That same year the Safe Drinking Water Act was passed requiring standards based on large metropolitan systems. However, the majority of systems in the nation (94%) serves less than 10,000 people and lack the economics of scale.
Since then, NRWA, through its State Affiliates, has grown to represent over 27,000 water and wastewater utilities and is now the largest utility membership association in the nation. With Hawai'i on board NRWA will represent utilities in all 50 states. In December of 2010, Hawai'i Rural Water Association officially was formed and became a
full-fledged member of the NRWA.
Member utilities in Hawai'i elected a Board of Directors who then elected a Director to serve on the National Board. Each state has one member on the National Board providing equal input.
Hawai'i Rural Water Association administers training and technical assistance programs and directs the association's future at the state level to meet local needs with programs, services and products.
Hawai'i Rural Water Association, with your support and involvement, will become a major player ensuring resources and directing water policy on a national level in Washington, D C.
HRWA provides semi-annual Back Flow Certification courses for Cross Connection Specialist and Back Flow Testers.
