Maryland Rural Water Association makes your voices better heard in Washington, DC and in Annapolis, MD as we work shoulder to shoulder with our membership to help increase awareness of water and wastewater issues on both state and federal levels.

Whether advocating on behalf of our members on the Farm Bill or establishing positions on legislation affecting our response to COVID-19, MRWA brings the power of our full membership to bear on essential issues affecting the water industry. 

We rally in the nation’s capital each year to personally speak to our members of Congress on key concerns and we communicate with decision-makers at the Maryland General Assembly in order to protect and promote public safety by keeping them informed on a wide range of policy issues.
