to allow for the small and rural
community perspective. In recent
years, the following NRWA members
have been participating on the
following panel (see the chart at the
bottom right).
As all federal environmental laws
that impact the membership are crafted
in Congress. NRWA is constantly
petitioning Capitol Hill to ensure these
laws are crafted in the most beneficial
manner. This year NRWA has been
requested to provide testimony in
Congress four times on issues including
federal regulatory policy (see the top
of this page for examples). In a recent
Congressional hearing, NRWA President
Steve Fletcher (Washington County
Water Company, Illinois) was asked
about small and rural communities'
thoughts on two important federal
policies under consideration by the
House of the Representatives: (1)
drinking water utility privatization and (2)
small water utility forced consolidation.
President Fletcher told the
committee on May 19, 2017,
"Consolidation or privatization
of small communities' water
systems is occurring and there is no
current legal or structural impediment

Water Act, civil enforcement can

solution. We would be very concerned

if the federal government expanded its
regulatory reach into this traditionally local
governmental authority."
All of the actions described in this
article are currently being advanced by
NRWA volunteer members. After all,
our grassroots network is our greatest
strength, and we must continue to act
together in harnessing that strength.
Again, we can accomplish what none of
us could achieve on our own by organizing
together with a common agenda.

Dennis Sternberg
Senate Environment and Public Works Committee
Legislative Hearing on S. 518, bill to amend the Federal
Water Pollution Control Act to provide for technical
assistance for small treatment works. March 28, 2017.

The Regulatory Committee will
continue with its ambitious agenda,
monthly policy meetings, briefings
from federal officials, advocacy in
Congress, participation on federal
advisory committees and commenting
on all relevant federal policy actions. If
you are interested in suggesting a new
policy you think would be beneficial to
the membership, please contact the
committee through Mike Keegan
(keegan@ruralwater.org). ●
