What is IRWA?

Idaho Rural Water Association is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation originally formed in 1987 to provide training and technical assistance to water and wastewater systems in Idaho with populations under 10,000. The non-profit corporation is currently comprised of over 350 water and wastewater systems in Idaho. Those 350 systems elect a seven member board of directors of professionals from the member systems that volunteer their time to govern the Association.
Since its inception, IRWA has also grown to include additional membership of industry vendors and others that support the mission of the Association. Eleven employees provide statewide operational services and managerial support to the water and wastewater systems in Idaho. The services provided by IRWA are critical to the water and wastewater systems in Idaho working to maintain compliance with stringent rules and regulations designed to protect our drinking water. The programs in place are cost effective as our employees assist as many as 120 different systems each month. The knowledge and expertise shared amongst these systems could not possibly be duplicated by having such qualified employees at each and every drinking water or wastewater system in Idaho.
