TRWF Board of Directors


The Texas Rural Water Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization established in 2010 as a supporting organization of the Texas Rural Water Association (TRWA). The Foundation was established by TRWA in order to expand upon the work of the Association.

Our Mission:
 To strengthen and advance the water and wastewater industry and to support and expand on the work of the Texas Rural Water Association.

Our Vision: TRWF strives for a well-respected and sustainable water and wastewater industry that has the support, workforce and resources necessary to serve their communities.





PH2OTOSTREAM is our response to a need for images from, and for, rural Texas—a way to share the contributions of rural Texas water and wastewater systems with the greater public.

Rural Workforce Initiative

The goals of the Texas Rural Water Foundation’s Rural Water Workforce Initiative are to promote the rural water industry as an attractive and accessible career path to new audiences. The Initiative will increase the industry’s visibility to current and future job seekers by acting as a resource and facilitator in connecting job seekers with hiring utilities.


Veteran Employment 

The Veteran Employment Program (VEP) was created to inspire and mobilize new interest and talent to work in the rural water and wastewater industry. More specifically, the VEP addresses this objective to create sustainable outreach, and a recruitment and vocational program that focuses on training and retaining new employees for the industry.
