The National Rural Water Association (NRWA) was formed in 1976. Prior to that, rural and small utilities, (comprising 92% of our nation's community water supplies), had little if any voice in legislative and regulatory issues. Today, NRWA through its State Rural Water affiliates is the nation's largest water and wastewater utility membership association with over 28,353 utility members. Our strong grassroots advocacy ensures increased funds, and their availability, through the Rural Utilities Service, State Revolving Loan Funds and other private entities.
The H2O-XPO is produced by, and is the property of the National Rural Water Association. The H2O-XPO serves as a forum for leaders of the rural water industry to exchange the latest information available in a professional atmosphere.
WaterPro takes place in even numbered calendar years, with the H2O-XPO filling odd numbered years.
