System Membership is an essential time and money saving tool for all of Pennsylvania’s water and wastewater systems, whether privately or publicly owned. PRWA Staff is ready and equipped to help your community or utility face the most complex challenges and regulations in the industry with resources, discounts, technical assistance, and legislative support. All water and wastewater systems with a population of 15,000 or less are eligible to join PRWA as voting members. Larger systems can join as non-voting members. Join the 1,000+ PRWA System Members who are already taking advantage of the following benefits and services we offer:

  • PRWA hosts the largest training & exhibit show in the state which includes over 70 training classes, 130+ exhibits, and on-site demonstrations. Members enjoy PRWA’s annual conference at a discounted price.

  • On-site technical assistance can be relied on when your system encounters a problem, large or small for water, wastewater, source water, stormwater, and any water utility concern. PRWA field staff experts are a phone call away, ready to provide your system with the best technical assistance available.
  • The PRWA website is full of water utility information, contact networking, news, and updated. The website also gives you access to your PaDEP contact hours and training certificates.
