Every year its members invest more than $3 billion in infrastructure investments designed to maintain an exceptional level of service and a strong record of compliance with health and environmental regulations.

“We proudly welcome Global Water Resources to our organization of the nation’s leading water service providers,” said Robert F.

Global Water has been recognized for its highly-effective implementation of Total Water Management (TWM), an integrated approach to managing the entire water cycle by owning and operating water, wastewater and recycled water utilities within the same geographic area which maximizes the beneficial use of recycled water. TWM conserves water by using the right water for the right use and helps protect water supplies in water-scarce areas experiencing population growth.
