About ARWO

Regional Systems are Unique and So is ARWO

Regional water and wastewater systems are unique organizations with unique needs, such as maintaining infrastructure networks that stretch across multiple political jurisdictions and serving customers who are often spread out over rural, suburban and urban areas. In addition, many regional water systems provide service to communities that have been historically unserved and underserved.

To support these unique water and wastewater systems, a group of regional utility executives came together in 2016 to establish ARWO, a not-for-profit trade association.
Led by an executive committee of utility managers, ARWO’s vision is to be the voice of regional water and wastewater systems and their means for knowledge exchange.

ARWO’s mission is to promote the present and future effectiveness of regional water and wastewater systems in delivering resilient and affordable services – by advancing our policy priorities in Washington D.C. and providing expert resources to improve governance, management and operations.
