Our Industry

Water companies have been providing quality service for centuries. The National Association of Water Companies (NAWC) proudly represents regulated water and wastewater companies, as well as those engaging in partnerships with municipal utilities. Our member companies safeguard public health, promote environmental stewardship and deliver sustainable solutions, supporting the needs of nearly 73 million Americans every day. 

Water systems owned and operated by water companies deliver 4.6 billion gallons of water to their customers every day. And while it might be easy to think they’re simply selling a commodity, the truth is they are providing important services and the infrastructure required for the treatment and delivery of safe, high quality, affordable water. NAWC members have an exceptional record of compliance with federal and state health and environmental regulations. Ensuring this high standard of quality requires extraordinary amounts of capital investment. 

NAWC estimates that its six largest members alone are collectively investing $2.7 billion each year in their water and wastewater systems.
