“Metroplan acts as a voice of regionalism and has worked as the council of local governments and Metropolitan Planning Organization for central Arkansas since 1955.”

Water Quality

“What oil was to the 20th century, water will be to the 21st century.”

High-quality, abundant and affordable drinking water is critical to the quality of life in and future development of central Arkansas. Metroplan is the secretariat for the Mid-Arkansas Water Alliance (MAWA), a cooperative effort of twenty-seven water utilities in seven central Arkansas counties to jointly acquire new long-term drinking water sources.
In addition, Metroplan has been involved first with Little Rock Waterworks and now with Central Arkansas Water, to protect the Lake Maumelle watershed in the face of increased development pressures.
