2014 Water Rally

Water Rally Highlights
  Highlights of the Water Rally (pdf)

Addressing Water and Wastewater Issues in Washington, D.C.

As Constituents from Alabama arrived in Washington. D.C. February 9-13, 2014, for the National Rural Water Association Rural Water Rally, they were joined by approximately 400 other participants from across the U. S. All were there to meet with their Congressional delegation and to deliver a unified message of support for challenges facing public water utilities.

Representing Alabama were 14 constituents:

  • Kathy Horne and Chris Lovelace both representing Alabama Rural Water Assn.
  • Randolph Hall, South Bullock Co. Water Authority
  • William Snyder, Monroeville Water Works
  • Debbie Hiltz, Rainbow City Utilities Board
  • Mark & Camilla Bohlin, Perdido Bay Water, Sewer & FPO
  • Dan McCrory, City of Fairhope Public Utilities
  • Daniel Rice, Citizens' Water Service, Inc.
  • Luke Rice, Citizens' Water Service, Inc.
  • Will & Orbuty Ozier, Lowndes County Water Authority
  • Peggie Johnson, Lowndes County Water Authority
  • Jeff Harrison, CDG Engineers & Associates. Inc.

Utility personnel attendance during the Rally is crucial each year for the continued support of water utilities in Alabama from the Alabama Congressional Delegation. Our Congressmen and women are genuinely interested in the water and wastewater issues within their district and throughout the State. They understand the importance and value of our precious commodity-water-which has a major impact upon economic development, human consumption, agriculture and the livelihood of our State and Nation. They understand your role as water and wastewater operators. general managers. office managers governing bodies and others whose job directly benefit the citizens of our Great State. They know an efficient environmental process begins in your local area. It spreads from there depending upon the local growth and progress. It is very critical that our members of Congress hear from our member utility personnel and decisionmakers. Your communication helps the Alabama Congressional Members to better represent utility interests in D. C. Because of these reasons and more we express our appreciation to the utility participants from Alabama.

With your support the ARWA provides legislative representation for its members and ask for Congressional support each year with appropriations to allow continued free services such as water and wastewater training, technical assistance. groundwater. surface water. source water protection. security assistance and emergency response assistance. Many thanks to those who took the time to attend and support the ARWA in their efforts. A special thanks as well to our Congressional delegation for taking the time to see and visit with us personally.
