Maine Rural Water Association is a member based organization created in 1979 with the goal of providing technical assistance and training to small water and wastewater utilities. As a non-profit trade association, we also advocate for our members' interests at the local, state, and federal levels. We are unique among trade associations in that we provide hands-on technical assistance. Our Water and Wastewater Circuit Riders, Training Specialist and Sourcewater Protection Specialist are federally funded. We also have 2 small water system circuit riders that are funded by the State of Maine. We have a 12 member board of Directors that represent over 400 entities in our industry from the very smallest water systems to the very largest water and wastewater utilities, as well as associated industry businesses.
Our Mission is to be known as the leading provider of quality training and technical assistance.
