MRWA's Objective is to provide
excellence in training and technical assistance to small municipal and
non-municipal systems, rural water districts, and wastewater districts
with populations less than 10,000.
What We Do: MRWA employs full-time
technicians and specialists who act as "circuit riders" visiting water
and wastewater systems in Minnesota. We assist communities and systems
in complying with complex regulations to protect public health and the
environment by providing on-site technical assistance and specialized
training. We provide assistance in areas of state and federal
regulations, fiscal management, system operation and maintenance,
system development, groundwater wellhead protection, source water
protection, leak detection, line locating, sewer televising, smoke
testing, water audits, rate studies, security vulnerability
assessments and emergency response plans, and so much more! We provide
unique, hands-on and classroom style training for certified water and
wastewater operations specialists. MRWA hosts the largest water and
wastewaster Technical Conference and Exposition in Minnesota.
MRWA Goals - MRWA visits approximately 300
systems monthly and hosts approximately 60 accredited training
sessions geographically across the state of Minnesota. More than
2,900 water and wastewater operations specialists and governing
personnel attend our training sessions annually.
The professional staff at MRWA is skilled in all areas of water
and wastewater operations and management. Decisions made today will
determine your system's future!
