Granite State Rural Water Association - Quality on Tap!
The day-to-day operations and management of water and wastewater systems pose significant challenges. Granite State Rural Water Association works with operators to help systems provide clean, safe, affordable water while safeguarding public health. Granite State Rural Water Association fills an important and unique role. We are the only organization in New Hampshire which provides hands-on technical assistance where operators need it – onsite at their system. Our staff goes directly to the water and wastewater systems to work with operators and help solve problems.
GSRWA Training in Action
GSRWA has three Circuit Riders who help operators with the technical, managerial and financial aspects of operating a drinking water system. Technical support includes leak detection, line locating, and valve maintenance. Using the latest technology, our Circuit Riders save systems hundreds of thousands of dollars each year by locating leaks. Managerial support includes assistance with vulnerability assessments, water audits, and review or development of policies and procedures. Lastly, circuit riders can help systems apply for grants and loans, and develop rate structures.
