Studies show that customers and public officials pay more attention to what they hear from the media compared to any other source of information, including their own local water utility. As our country continues to face tough water challenges, it's more important than ever to get the story right.

The NAWC is the voice of the private water industry, and we are committed to serving as a credible resource for journalists who wish to learn more about private water companies and the work our members are doing in communities and cities across the country. Get the facts on private water from the people who know.
