Mission Statement 

The Nebraska Well Drillers Association has a long tradition in the groundwater industry in Nebraska. The Association was created in 1929, that is 93 years old, or nearly a century ago and nurtured by key industry leaders along with academicians from the University of Nebraska.

The NWDA has served the industry by providing technical training, new product exposure, idea sharing and fellowship among the members. The organization represents businesses and industries as well as technicians dealing with water well drilling, pump installation, manufacturing and the supplying of equipment and material for water well work.

The NWDA has also become a significant voice in legislative and regulatory affairs of the State of Nebraska.
