Letters of Support

We are respectfully requesting your continued support for the New Jersey Water Association (NJWA).

These letters of support act as visual evidence of the effectiveness of our programs and are written by you. The New Jersey Water Association provides a valuable service and we would like to continue our mission of helping water and wastewater systems throughout New Jersey.  Sample letters are available on our website to assist you in writing a letter of support.

The federal dollars that are appropriated to National Rural Water Association (NRWA) are distributed to the states permitting the NRWA state affiliates to provide vital training and hands-on technical assistance to water and wastewater systems. Without these programs, communities would lose a valuable resource, which assists them in maintaining safe drinking water and complying with wastewater standards set to protect the environment. This valuable service saves hundreds of thousands of dollars every year for these systems since the technical staff is available free of charge. Increased regulations and costs are already hitting these systems very hard. NJWA‘s training and technical assistance offered through the state is an essential resource to these communities struggling to provide safe drinking water and protect the environment they serve. 

Please mail letters on system letterhead.
