*** Equipment Fund Contribution Details: Everyday MRWA staff carry leak detectors, line tracers, metal detectors, hydrant repair tools, drawdown gauges, pressure relive valves, flow meters, composite samples, sludge judges, etc. that are used to provide on-site technical assistance to you. We would appreciate a voluntary contribution to our Equipment Repair and Replacement Fund to continue to update our equipment to the latest technology and repair equipment as needed. MRWA also has an Emergency Response Trailer that includes industry donated pumps, hoses, generators, flood bags, and a control panel that has been used in municipalities due to flooding, tornadoes, or other natural disasters. This equipment also needs to be repaired and replaced. This equipment may not have been used in your community (YET!) but we have to be prepared to respond if you make that call.  Thank you for your support of MRWA!
