Utility Branding Network
NWRI manages the Utility Branding Network on behalf of water and wastewater agencies to help utilities better understand the principles and benefits of branding.
The Network provides utilities with expertise on how to build a strong brand to make them formidable competitors for investment in a narrowing market of available funds.
By joining the Network, utilities are provided with the tools to clearly communicate the value they provide to increase trust and support from policy makers and the community, which are vital for investment in water resources, public health, and infrastructure.
