NRWA Joins #RebuildRural Coalition Advocating for Investment in Rural Infrastructure
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The National Rural Water Association has joined #RebuildRural, a coalition of over 200 organizations from across the country encouraging President Donald J. Trump to prioritize rebuilding infrastructure in rural America.

“Those of us in rural communities have seen our infrastructure deteriorate, jeopardizing jobs, our agricultural competitiveness and the health of rural families,” the coalition wrote in a letter to the President. “Our deteriorating infrastructure threatens our leadership position.”

NRWA joined the effort as a way to bring greater support to its over 31,000 utility memberships, which supply drinking water and wastewater service in all 50 states. Rural Water has continually advocated for investment in the small water systems that supply clean, affordable drinking water to their communities, and the wastewater facilities that protect the public health and the environment.
