Welcome ImageWelcome to the MWRA



We believe that our association -Mississippi Water Resources Association- is unique. We promote the advancement of Mississippi rivers, ports and harbors, coastal and inland waterways, flood control, recreation, water development and management, water supply and all other beneficial uses of water resources. Water issues are becoming increasingly important to the general public and our organization is made up of members who are committed to meeting the water needs of our citizens, while providing international economic opportunities through our ever growing ports.

Our members set the standard for professional activities. These include offering public seminars on water resource engineering and management, port and intermodal utilization and economic analyses.

Strategic water planning and management require an even hand and strong leadership in constantly changing situations. Balancing the economic, environmental and recreational needs of our citizens is what we are about. MWRA members will continue to be part of the solution to the state's many water issues.

We are the first to acknowledge that Mississippi's surface and groundwater supply constitute one of our greatest assets - both for our own citizens and to enhance economic development throughout the state.
