Technical Assistance (Water) IRWA’s Circuit riders offer one-on-one technical assistance on-your-site with the operators and management of the systems. This assistance and training covers areas of daily operation and maintenance, management and finance, leak detection, cross-connection, sanitary surveys, rate structures, operator licensure training, meter testing, treatment, disinfection, well construction, compliance and other issues pertaining to water and wastewater. Special emphasis is placed on those systems that are out of compliance with Federal and State drinking water regulations.

Technical Assistance (Wastewater) Technical assistance is offered in not only water but also wastewater. Wastewater addresses issues such as operator licensure training, discharge monitoring reports, NPDES permits, collection systems, operation and maintenance, process disinfection and safety.

The Source Water Protection Programs assists with technical assistance and training in the development of source water protection plans for communities, districts and regional multi-jurisdictional areas. This will help your system maintain the highest quality of drinking water in the long-term.
IRWA Training Seminars Training subjects that are covered address various water and wastewater issues. IRWA also hosts an Annual Conference in the Spring and a Northern Conference in the Fall with training sessions and exhibits that feature the latest in technological advances in the industry.

We are headquartered in Idaho, which is both the fastest growing state in the nation and a state built on water, from vast underground aquifers to bubbling hot springs and towering waterfalls. Here, water is as essential to recreation and adventure as it is for industry and growth. Mountain Waterworks was formed to make water work for our clients, both regionally and nationwide.

Our services extend well beyond simple insurance; in fact, your life as a public official or employee is made simpler by the ICRMP coverages and services, giving you peace of mind and the ability to better run your organization.

We don't build your buildings, we make sure you have a safety net in place for the unknown. We don't govern a city or county, we cover you so you can provide parks to play in, safe water to drink, law enforcement officers to keep the peace and a functioning unit of local government to continue to serve your constituents with trust and confidence. ICRMP was created out of necessity, filling a void left by the sudden withdrawal of commercial carriers from the public sector in the 1980's. That same necessity is what continues to drive our operations today - nobody knows and nobody covers Idaho local governments like ICRMP can and does. Our members get the exact coverages they need, no extra fluff coverages that creeps up the cost of commercial policies. Whether you're a city, county or special purpose district in Idaho we've got you covered.
