IRWA Mission Statement

To serve Iowa’s Public Water and Wastewater Systems by providing technical assistance, education, leadership in legal and legislative affairs, financial and economic growth, and excellence in the industry.

2023 IRWA Annual Report

First and foremost, we would like to thank all members of the Association—our Rural/Regional and Community Members, Associate Members, Non-Community and Individual Members. We are blessed with a very loyal and stable membership base. As a member of the National Rural Water Association (NRWA) we can provide many exclusive services to water and wastewater systems throughout Iowa. As such, we have dedicated, experienced professional field staff members who will come out to your system and provide on-site services at no cost to you or your system. We are able to provide these services due to sub-agreements from NRWA funded by USDA-Rural Development, USDA-Farm Service Agency and the US-Environmental Protection Agency. We are grateful for the technical assistance and training funding provided through these federal agencies. These funds provide our staff with the opportunity to offer quality technical assistance to our membership and every public water and wastewater system in Iowa. Because these programs traditionally cost more to operate than the grant funding received, membership dues and conference revenues help offset the excess costs in order to continue to make these programs available to you.

We are pleased to present to you this annual report highlighting the Iowa Rural Water Association’s activities for 2023. Please take a moment to review this report and note our many accomplishments throughout the past year.
