Member Benefits

Membership in the NCRWA has its advantages…

The North Carolina Rural Water Association’s membership is directly involved with the day to day operation of rural water and wastewater systems. The Association is keenly aware of the needs of these systems. This has resulted in a network of information and technical services available statewide. These services are not limited to providing safe drinking water, but also to protect North Carolina’s increasingly fragile environment. To achieve these goals, NCRWA offers a variety of resources.

A NCRWA membership puts our resources at your fingertips.  As it says in our mission statement, our commitment to providing our water and wastewater membership with the highest quality support services available is our primary objective.  Our purpose is to serve you!
