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.
