Marketing & Education

Part of RAIN's recent work has included rebranding and producing new educational materials to distribute and inform the public about what RAIN is and what we do. RAIN’s rebrand highlights our real-time technology and positions us a valuable resource in the Ohio River Water Basin. We’re expanding our monitoring sites and reaching out to new stakeholders, including watershed groups, water authorities and municipalities. With a new director and new brand, we’re working towards a cleaner, healthier and better water source for Western Pennsylvania, West Virginia and the entire Ohio River Water Basin.

(SWEET) Source Water Environmental Education Team

The RAIN SWEET has been working to expand RAIN’s message by conducting public outreach and educational events on RAIN’s mission of source water protection. The SWEET makes itself available to RAIN Member utilities to conduct such events at local community fairs and schools. The SWEET also promotes RAIN to local and regional decision-makers such as municipal, county and state officials. It is expanding its effort to include presentations and poster events at professional and technical conferences.
