In the Community

We believe community involvement and education are critical to what we do. You can find our employees at neighborhood events, schools and festivals. We do this because we care about our community. By being involved in the community, we listen to concerns, answer questions and help people understand any issues involving water in their area.

Since 2015, our RWAter to Go Water Wagon has been a driver of our community outreach efforts to promote the quality and value of tap water. RWAter to Go is a mobile water fountain and bottle fill station that operates April through October on a first-come, first-served basis.
