Rural Water Circuit Rider Technical Assistance
The Rural Water Circuit Rider Program provides on-site assistance to help assure cost-effective operation and protection of Wisconsin’s investment in rural water systems. These efforts are directed toward unincorporated rural systems, tribal systems, small municipal systems and incorporated municipal systems under 10,000 population. WRWA Circuit Riders work alongside system personnel to train operators how to correct a problem rather than simply fixing it for them. They provide assistance in maintenance, management, treatment, compliance and environmental issues. Each year our Circuit Riders make over 400 onsite visits to communities in the state. It is a priority of WRWA water programs to provide high quality drinking water for WI residents therefore this assistance is provided at no charge to the systems and communities they serve.
