Tapping the Possibilities
Regional Water Authority
At the Regional Water Authority (RWA), our purpose is to make life better for people by delivering water for life. Our employees and board members take this responsibility to the region very seriously. Water is a key element of a prosperous, healthy community. Our employees and board members take great pride in the delivery of this life-sustaining product and the services that safeguard public health, provide fire protection, support local economic growth and maintain the overall quality of life we enjoy. Eli Whitney II’s vision to make life better for people by bringing water from Lake Whitney in Hamden to the people of New Haven and beyond is in good hands more than 170 years later. At the RWA, we are uniquely positioned to build on our organizer’s legacy by continuing to make a positive difference in people’s lives. And today, we are forward focused and passionate about the journey we are on to transform into a 21st-century environmental services company for our customers.
