NAWC member companies not only invest in their water systems, they also invest in the communities they serve. They take their commitment to being good corporate citizens very seriously. NAWC member companies take an active role in their communities by supporting local charitable efforts and organizations. Each year, water companies donate millions of dollars and employees volunteer countless hours of their time to a diverse array of community groups and activities.
In addition, water companies contribute to local economies by paying local property taxes and permit fees for projects, providing valuable government revenue without reliance on tax dollars or government subsidies. Additionally, water companies provide well-paying jobs, competitive benefits and training to employees. Water companies also have an exemplary safety record, leading with successful, innovative and cutting-edge approaches to eliminate risk and protect the communities they serve.
