Serving the needs of Iowa’s Water and Wastewater Industries Today and Into The Future

Iowa’s water and wastewater utilities face many multifaceted technical, managerial and financial issues in their day to day operations. Our Mission Statement reflects our commitment to assisting these systems: To provide the highest quality leadership in the support of Iowa’s Water and Wastewater Industries through the provision of technical assistance, training and education, legislative, regulatory and public affairs, and assistance in economic development and financing activities.

IRWA was formed in the mid 1970’s for the purpose of providing the most up-to-date, professional and effective training and technical assistance to Iowa’s water and wastewater systems throughout Iowa. An elected, volunteer Board of Directors consisting of professionals in the water supply and wastewater industries governs IRWA.

The Association remains firmly committed to the advancement of Iowa’s water and wastewater industries. In the effort to ensure strong, viable water and wastewater industries in Iowa, IRWA offers a wide variety of programs and training events statewide.

As a member-driven organization, IRWA is financially supported through its membership dues, conferences and grant programs. Membership is open to all organizations and individuals associated with our industries.
