ZIONSVILLE, IN & WAIKOLOA VILLAGE, HI (FEBRUARY 18, 2021) – 120Water and the Hawai’i Rural Water Association (HRWA) announced a new partnership that will expand the technical assistance and support available to HRWA members, with a focus on equipping systems with tools and resources to successfully manage water quality programs related to lead and other contaminants. The partnership will also increase the resources available to water systems as they prepare to meet new regulatory expectations due to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Lead and Copper Rule Revisions (LCRR).
“I’m excited about this partnership between HRWA and 120Water as it will provide our water utilities
and their customers with another solution to meet the new requirements under the LCRR” said Juanita Reyher-Colon, HRWA’s Executive Director.
As the leading end-to-end solution for managing critical lead and drinking water programs, 120Water enables local and state governments, water systems and facilities to manage water quality and prioritize investments that protect public health. The 120Water solution — which will be available with preferred pricing to HRWA members — automates actions needed to meet compliance requirements, such as LCR, and ensures timely and transparent communication with stakeholders and the public.
“With potential infrastructure funding and LCR revisions on the horizon, this is a timely partnership to help HRWA members get ahead of the curve,” said Lowell Huffman, Director of Partnership at 120Water. “Providing water professionals with the tools to efficiently operate water quality programs will not only help them meet compliance and access funding opportunities, but to safeguard water quality and protect public health.”

Rural water initiatives began back in 1976 as a result of the Safe Drinking Water Act; enacted and enforced by the EPA in 1974. Rural water initiatives focus on providing grassroots training and technical assistance for all rural water and wastewater communities nationwide to meet and maintain compliance of the Act. The Hawai’i Rural Water Association (HRWA), a state affiliate of the National Rural Water Association (NRWA), is a 501c(3) nonprofit organization that maintains the rural water initiatives at a local level in the State of Hawai‘i and the Pacific American Territories. The HRWA formally organized in December of 2010 and provides training and technical assistance for rural water & wastewater community systems largely through its federally funded programs: USDA RD, FSA, and EPA. All programs are a free service to Hawai‘i’s rural utility systems to utilize and ensure quality and safe drinking water. Our mission is to provide superior support and quality training to our rural water and wastewater communities and do so with Accountability, Integrity, Leadership, Quality, and Trust.
