"To provide the latest information, education, and technical assistance to protect our public waters and improve the quality of life in Minnesota." Minnesota Rural Water Association was founded in 1978. We are a non-profit association governed by a board of directors. We are staffed with full-time personnel trained to offer professional on-site technical assistance and training to water and wastewater system personnel in managerial, financial, and operation and maintenance of systems, as well as source water protection. MRWA is funded through grants, contracts, and membership monies to allow us to offer our services to water and wastewater systems and governing personnel. MRWA is proudly affiliated with National Rural Water Association.
