The Connecticut Steering Committee has determined the ASRWWA name will be retained, and will be holding a Special Meeting to consider proposed by-law changes and to assign a board of directors. Below are links to the meeting notice and the proposed by-law changes.
From Jimmy J. Folco Jr., RIRWA President
I would like to announce some exciting news for water and wastewater systems in Rhode Island. In the past, systems in Connecticut and Rhode Island were served by one combined association, the Atlantic States Rural Water Association (ASRWWA). We have been working in collaboration with the National Rural Water Association (NRWA) and ASRWWA to stand up two individual State Associations to better serve all system members. I am happy to announce this effort is well underway.
We in Rhode Island have filed our Articles of Incorporation with the Office of the Rhode Island Secretary of State and have been recognized as the Rhode Island Rural Water Association (RIRWA). We will be providing our membership uninterrupted services, training opportunities, and a plan for increased services in the coming weeks, months, and years. RIRWA has launched our official website; www.rirwa.org, where our current and prospective members will find and access much information.
